New photographic collection celebrates the UK transgender community.
As part of an initiative to make stock images more representative of society, Adobe has released a new photo collection that celebrates the UK’s transgender community.
Released to celebrate International Trans Day of Visibility, the photo collection features a diverse group of people from different backgrounds and at different stages in their life. Each of the photos to feature in the collection were taken by photographer Bex Day.
The models in the collection hail from all across the UK, from Shropshire to Essex, to showcase the diversity of the trans community in the UK across different ages, nationalities and fashion styles.
The collaboration comes hot off the heels of Adobe’s recent visual trend The Fluid Self which explores the ways our concept of identity is changing; from Facebook’s inclusion of 71 different gender options, to fashion brands developing no-gender lines.
As part of this, Adobe is committed to bringing greater diversity to its Stock library. Ryan Levitt, Senior Communications Manager at Adobe EMEA says:
Adobe is committed to expanding the range and diversity of images available in Adobe Stock and ensuring there is a more authentic representation of the transgender community is an important part of that.
We are working with some truly inspirational contributors to bring this to life in Adobe Stock, with our latest focus on the Fluid Self which provides an exciting opportunity to help challenge harmful myths and stereotypes about people from different backgrounds. Bex Day’s collection is a fantastic addition to the library.
