Photographer Wendi Kali shot almost 100 people in 35 cities as part of her new “Butch/Femme Photo Project,” which she’s deemed an exploration of lesbian identity. As The Advocate reports, the project is an effort to archive modern “butch” and “femme” existence. Kali, who is a lesbian, says she initially explored her own identity (which she describes as butch) and couldn’t really relate to what she found.

Kali wrote in a blog post, “Everyone in the world has an identity.
