i-D: Parisian collector Sébastien Lifshitz has been building a robust and internationally-sourced photo archive since he was a teenager. His focus is on queer identity, from the art of drag to transgender metamorphosis. His collection of amateur photos is displayed for the very first time at the Rencontres d’Arles — a major festival in the south of France — under the title Sincerely Queer (Mauvais Genre, also a book). Collecting these images has been his hobby and passion alongside his films, most notably Bambi, a portrait of one of the first French transgender women, for which he won the best documentary César in 2013.
