Toronto-based artist Vivek Shraya’s decided to document the journey of her gender transition by recreating her mother’s old photos. The photo series, titled Trisha, is also accompanied by a heart-felt essay.

 

 

 

 

 

Shraya says that she decided on the title Trisha because her mother used to say if she had a girl, she would have given her same name. “While transitioning in the past year, it’s been surreal to look at this photo and see how similar we look, and the idea for this project was born out of noting our particular similarities at this moment in my life,” she says.

 

 

 

 

She told BuzzFeed that she got the idea for the photo series in November after which the planning took place until the shoot in March. Although the clothing worn by her mother were in the 70s style, one of her friends, Mickelli Orbe, specially tailored her outfits for the project. “I haven’t yet shown my mom but I hope to, one day,” she says.
