The young (FTM) man subject of this project is called Kler. His discreet and poetic universe was revealed to me through the photographs he published on Instagram and I became a witness of his metamorphosis. The meetings and photo sessions took place at relatively distant intervals yet were constant by means of a consistent dialogue. Taken from the male wardrobe, clothes and objects - though sometimes somewhat outdated - make up a first privileged means of appropriating his gender, whilst the incorporation process occurs through injections and whilst other male signifiers become flesh.
This quest for identity is motivated by desire.
