Linda Bournane Engelberth’s “Outside the Binary” was featured in the New York Times LENS blog.

“Each portrait has a personal reflection about identity, proof that non-binary is about more than external markers: it is also about internal feelings. These first-person accounts exist beyond the frame, with and against the portraits they illuminate and complicate.”

“Outside the Binary” is Linda’s contribution to the “Her Take: (Re)Thinking Masculinity”project that premiered at Photoville. “Her Take” is an exhibition in seven parts by the Seven of VII, the seven female photographers of VII. Each photographer is undertaking a visual reflection on masculinity — re-framing it, challenging it, referencing it historically, exploring it, considering it in specific cultural contexts and changing social conventions, or coming out from the shadow of it.
