Emma Murengo

Lensed by Anne Sophie Guillet

“I’m Emmanuelle, 27, from Brussels, Belgium. Both of my parents are from Burundi but I’ve lived most of my life here in Brussels. As a black trans woman, I am in the intersectionality of three minorities. While growing up, I could first witness this kind of issue through the eyes of my elder sisters. As we lived in Africa, we grew up with imposed European beauty standards. As I saw them playing with their blond and blue eyed dolls, the process of interlacing the wrong idea of beauty apparel often along with self-hate (the feeling of not having the “right” hair, the “good” skin or body type. “

FANTAGIRL I AM THE WOMAN I AM is a project by Fantabody in collaboration with Vogue Italia.

The photographic project made in collaboration with Giustina Guerrieri, a young communication specialist who had always an interest in voicing real stories whilst exploring the boundaries of femininity.

An ode to the female body, regardless of its shape and skin colour. A research that promotes diversity as a starting point for addressing topics such as disability or immigration, which are approached with an inclusive, curious and prejudice-free attitude. Portrayed in her seductive uniqueness, every photographed subject has the opportunity to tell her story and reveal her nature with pride. An all-female collaboration where the protagonists are shot by selected female photographers and interviewed in the form of an intimate exchange of anecdotes and experiences.

The project is published monthly on vogue.it.
