“At first the focus of my project was my gender transition, but along the way I found out that it’s about an ongoing search for myself: being a human with feelings, who is continuously developing.” – Marvel Harris

The project entitled “Inner Journey” follows my personal battles with gender identity, autism, and mental health. Through photography, I have learned to understand the root of my conflicts and express emotions that I previously struggled to make sense of.

In this autobiographical story, where photography and life entwine and merge, I invite others to participate in my vulnerability, offering them an insight into my mind.

By making my lifelong journey of self-discovery visible with my camera, I hope to contribute to an increased awareness of the issues surrounding gender identity, autism, and mental health and to participate in a more inclusive and understanding world.
