LR photographer Rhys Harper on TLC's 'I Am Jazz' tonight

Posted By on Wed, Aug 12, 2015 at 1:15 PM

Little Rock-based photographer Rhys Harper, who has traveled all over America shooting portraits of transgender folks in their hometowns for his "Transcending Gender" project, will be featured on the TLC reality show "I Am Jazz" tonight, shooting mermaid-themed photos of series focus Jazz Jennings and a young trans girl, as seen in the clip below. We've previously written about Harper and the project. 

"I Am Jazz," an 11-part series, follows the life of 14-year-old Jennings as she navigates life in high school. The series debuted on July 15. To help fund Harper's ongoing project, visit a GoFundMe page he's set up here.
