You Are You critics say:

“…[Lindsay Morris’] work’s greatest value may be in teaching us to see the potential joy of children who are allowed the freedom to be themselves.” – Eliza Gray, TIME

“…Morris is the responsible, kind and honest translator of these boys’ and girls’ experiences into nuanced images of transcendent beauty.” – Andrew Solomon, National Book Award-winning author

“You Are You sheds light on these beautiful young people and their families, whose love and understanding has helped create this remarkable place.” – Nathan Lane, actor and writer

“…Lindsay Morris shows that there is so much more complexity, so many subtler shades, than the traditional dualistic perspective on gender suggests.”  – Dr. Norman Spack, endocrinologist, Children’s Hospital, Boston 

“…Morris’ images are fierce, vulnerable, charged with the excitement of each child’s individuality unleashed and bear witness to the complexity, beauty, suspense of the identity and how it unfolds." – A.M. Homes, Winner 2013 Women’s Prize  –Orange Prize for the novel, May We Be Forgiven

“You Are You, is a beautiful achievement that welcomes us to a world in which the freedom of exploration through gender non-conformity is celebrated.”  – Catherine Opie, artist and Professor of Art UCLA

“When stripped away from all of the labels and reviews, what Morris has created with these charming photographs is an opportunity to relive a universal childhood experience of innocence.”  – David Rosenberg, Slate Magazine, Behold

Friday Nights are made possible, in part, by the generous support of The Corcoran Group and Bridgehampton National Bank.
