(Un)bound will feature photographic prints by Grace Baey, and scrapbooks created by each of her four story subjects, Sonia Pravinaa, Jose Jude, Deveshwar Sham and Cassandra Thng. The scrapbooks contain personal journal entries that reflect on experiences of struggle, resilience, and coping strategies amidst the challenges of dealing with gender norms in society. These range from issues of gender dysphoria to family relationships, topics that are rarely addressed in Singapore with regard to the transgender community.
Grace began to get to know the community in 2015, when a friend who organised an annual transgender beauty pageant asked her to photograph the event. Over time, she established friendships with her story subjects through community initiatives they were involved in.
