The Wider Image: Harrison: A transgender man's journey
For Harrison Massie, transitioning from female to male was never about trading one gender for another. Seven years ago, Harrison, now 29, started his journey "to feel more like myself." "I'm not embarrassed to say that I was ever a woman," said Harrison, who lives in St. Louis, Missouri. "Ultimately it's a part of who I am and how I was raised, and I love having the perspective of both genders." But Harrison said he longed to feel more comfortable in his own body and wanted to have certain masculine features such as a flat chest. As he embarked on his journey, Sara Swaty, a young photographer and friend, set off to capture it, frame by frame, year after year. "In my previous work, I had never had the opportunity to connect with anyone so deeply and document their transition from the very beginning," said Swaty, who first met Harrison as a teenager in high school. "I always approached photo shoots with clear concepts and ideas of what I wanted the images to look like," she said. "But with Harrison, I was ... following his lead, and did my best to capture him as he felt, not as how I saw him." REUTERS/Sara Swaty SEARCH "SWATY HARRISON" FOR THIS STORY.
