Sad Girls

by Kiki Hansen Appel
This is a collection of portraits I took of my sibling, christian hansen appel (they/them/theirs), between 2004 and 2019. All photos were taken with my father's analog olympus. Any gaps in time represent a period when the camera was in disrepair. 

The portraits are casual except for the series shot in 2016, and the text is a poem I wrote for Christian inspired by the series. As a totality, the photos become a reflection on a journey and on transition.
