Peter, 1978 (Unknown photographer)

Peter (1998-2003)

Peter documents a friend's transition from female to male. When Fiveash began photographing Peter in 1998, he had changed his name, started binding his chest, taking testosterone, and living as a man. These images capture a metamorphosis Fiveash characterizes as "extraordinary and exciting" as Peter is transformed from a shy, awkward woman into a self-empowered, confident, and happy man.
