Allie Crewe

Parallel Journeys


Ongoing project about Olivia Fisher, who is brave enough to transform and grow. We met in 2017 when we were each about to undergo a huge change. Olivia was transitioning in her gender identity and I was leaving my career. 

We feel that as we met at a pivotal time we are connected, what happens below the surface interests me.

Can society accept that how we define gender identity is changing?"
