So very proud of this, to mark International Transgender Day of Visibility, Adobe Stock has partnered with self-taught photographer Bex Day to create a collection of images to celebrate the UK’s transgender community.
Bex Day, renowned for her unique and original style, has created a collection that focusses on ten transgender people of varying ages, with different backgrounds, set against the backdrop of London and Berlin. The set of images are available on the Adobe Stock library from today.
There is growing visibility of the trans community in politics and pop culture, but currently a dearth of images that reflect this. In the visual world, old stereotypes often mean there are huge communities not represented because they don’t fit into a prescribed box. The new collection by Bex Day delivers on Adobe Stock’s ambition to make images more inclusive of people of different backgrounds supporting marketers and visual artists to more accurately depict these communities and individuals.
The collaboration is part of Adobe Stock’s Visual Trend forecast, which gives brands, designers and artists a window into topics, themes and discussions that are drawing consumers’ attention. The trend for March/April, The Fluid Self, explores the ways our concept of identity are changing; from Facebook’s inclusion of 71 different gender options, to fashion brands developing no-gender lines.
