"Wrongly Bodied Two weaves together the stories of two people. One chronicles Jake's modern day evolution from female to male. His experience is juxtaposed with that of Ellen Craft, a 19th century black woman who escapes slavery by passing as a white man. While photographing Jake's transition, Sligh became conscious of society's psychological response to the transgressive act of changing one's identity and recalling Ellen Craft's journey to freedom, Sligh confronts her own fears of crossing the taboo boundaries of gender, race and class" --Artist's website.
