“The last portrait I made is of my mom holding a spider web I gathered from an apple tree. That weekend I spent with my parents I was hoping to tell them I was in the midst of transitioning, but never found the right moment. After developing the portraits of them, I saw how their gazes were attempting to figure me out: why was my skin so much softer, why did I suddenly look younger, was their offspring something other than what they had known her to be.” –Peah Pauline Guilmoth
