There is something special about these images – the uniqueness of the models, the looks and the stories every one seems to tell. Bettina Rheims’s “Gender Studies” has 27 of these stories of young boys and girls in between the sexes and genders, a third sex, or sex X as Australia allows now to be signed in the passport.
Bettina spoke with all of them and sound artist Frédéric Sanchez composed  the interviews to a sound collage that fills the exhibition in Düsseldorf’s NRW Forum. The voices are equally important because they tell the story and they complete each character.
