“His portraits—many taken in Corlears Hook Park, where the Lower East Side meets the East River—bring to mind Diane Arbus’s midcentury studies of gender nonconformists, except Green emphasizes not their otherness, but their beauty and empowerment. Today’s trans youth, after all, have the cultural agency to tell their own stories, and Green treats them as collaborators.”
—Michael Schulman, “Future Gender”
