WONG, Sarah and Ellen de VISSER. Inside Out: Portraits of Cross-gender Children.

(Zwolle, The Netherlands): d’Jonge Hond, 2010.  First edition.  Quarto.  87 pages plus images. Through Sarah Wong’s beautiful, moving photographs and Ellen Visser’s poignant writing, the book provides the first insight into what it really feels like to be born in the wrong body, both for cross gender children and their families.  Over the course of seven years, Sarah Wong and Ellen de Visser followed girls who feel they are boys, and vice versa. They were invited into homes, schools, hospitals and sporting events. These aren’t gratuitous images, but portraits of their daily lives; proving that they are regular children that have managed to live the life they have always wanted. The accompanying text tells each child’s moving story.  A near fine copy in photo-illustrated wrappers with integral flaps.  Scarce.
