Bennett photographed Kearns every month for two years during his pregnancy and physical transition.

People were “confronted and challenged” by the exhibition, said Kearns.

“It was interesting to see people’s reactions,” he said. “There was a few people who had to walk out and come back a bit later.”

Bennett agreed, saying many people found it hard to “get their heads around” the idea of a man being pregnant.
