My son was born in 2011. We did not know beforehand what the gender would be. It was very difficult for the midwives to keep this a secret from us, because they are so used today that everyone wants to know in advance. Even before your child is born, you cannot avoid the division of boy vs girl in the shops. It has already been determined.
In education I try to be as gender neutral as possible. I see my child's struggle with the boxes you are supposed to fit into.
The time has come for him to let go of the fantasy a little and end up more in the reality of the hard world. Over the years I have tried to capture innocence in images; just capturing him as a child without a label with a camera when he is not yet concerned about what others think of him.
