Trista Mcgovern

Lensed by Trista Mcgovern

“My name is Trista McGovern. I am a photographer, editor, artist, and writer based out of Minneapolis. Lately I have been focused on promoting awareness and education about ableism – especially disability and sexuality. I have been using my personal life experiences as an example for people to learn from. Within my photographic work, I love photographing anything that is about humans being humans, especially vulnerably intimate portraits, body studies, social series, and lifestyle portraits. Outside of my passion for photography and social issues, I spend a lot of time with people I love and connecting with others. Building community and unlearning ingrained societal issues/systems has been a huge theme of my life this year. From a small Wisconsin town to getting my Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography up until now, I have always prioritized growth personally, creatively, interpersonally, and professionally. At 27 years old, I have reached a point of wanting to share my experiences with people and have been increasingly excited for all the future projects I am currently working on and planning to do too.”

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.
