A worldwide premiere is a selection of the American photographer Remsen Wolff (1940 – 1998) from his recently discovered archive. For the first time his loving portraits of transvestites, transgenders and transsexuals can be seen. Wolff created this series ‘All American Girls’ in his studio in New York in the 1990s.
