She has been working on her current project ‘People Like Us’ since 2018, about AFAB (assigned female at birth) trans and non-binary identities and experience, it will become a photo-book in 2023. A zine featuring a series of portraits and quotes from the project was commissioned by Shout Festival in 2020.
