This transgender photo series follows the lives of two transgender girls who were born boys over the course of six years. Intimate and candid, the images depict "their inner and outer attempts to align their sex assignments at birth with their gender identity," as Beautiful Decay. Named after the two girls, Mandy and Eva, the transgender photo series is full of beauty and insight.
