This photo project is about Zsofia A. Szabo - a Hungarian woman - currently living and working in Sweden.

 

She is a transgender woman.

When the project started I wasn't aware of her background. The first things, which captured my eyes, were Sophia's personality and a strong character of her presence. Through several meetings I got to know her background of different religions, her way of thinking and how open minded she is in her relationships with both women and men.

 

I was surprised to learn that she was assigned as a boy at birth and was raised like that. She identified herself as a woman later on, which led to her transition into the woman she always was.

 

Sophia's story convinced me to explore her story more deeply and continue with the project.
