In It's Just Sex the Swedish photographer Claudia Kent explores issues surrounding gender, sexuality, and intimacy. This book is the result of a photographic documentary project conducted between 2013 and 2018 in Germany, Sweden, Australia, and the USA. The featured portraits were taken in the homes of individuals who identify as homosexual, bisexual, trans, non-binary or other, less established, statuses. As varied as they are, they are connected by their shared experiences of being othered, and by the way they challenge societal norms of sexuality or expressions of gender. Kent's purpose with this book is ultimately to inspire viewers to reflect upon the shared humanity that lies beyond our supposed differences.
