Farida Lemeatrag was born in Belgium (Ghent).
She graduated from Sint-Lucas school of Arts at ghent (belgium).
Farida is a photographer working mainly around social themes. So she's turned her lens almost for years ago, towards transgender youngsters. This series of photographs, titled “Transgender Youth” tells the stories of 40 children who have been subject to this experience that is accompanied with fear, lack of self-confidence, confusion and loneliness. The work of the photographer was only possible after she established a strong individual relationship with each of her subjects based on a mutual trust. These strikingly moving portraits aim to change the society’s perception on transgenders and to defeat the stigma associated to the word itself.
