Adobe Stock: The Fluid Self by Adobe and Bex Day
To mark International Transgender Day of Visibility, Adobe Stock has partnered with self-taught photographer Bex Day to create a collection of images that celebrate the UK’s transgender community. Day, renowned for her unique and original style, has created a collection that focuses on ten transgender people of varying ages, with different backgrounds, to showcase the diversity of the trans community - set against the backdrop of London and Berlin.
In the visual world, old stereotypes often mean there are huge communities not represented because they don’t fit into a prescribed box. The new collection delivers on Adobe Stock’s ambition to make images more inclusive of people of different backgrounds supporting marketers and visual artists to more accurately depict these communities and individuals.
The collaboration is part of Adobe Stock’s Visual Trend forecast, which gives brands, designers and artists a window into topics, themes and discussions that are drawing consumers’ attention. The trend for March/April, The Fluid Self, explores the ways our concept of identity is changing, from Facebook’s inclusion of 71 different gender options, to fashion brands developing no-gender lines.
