Aliya Sztulman of Newcastle, Australia.
Aliya admits to being a very private person, so I’m privileged to have photographed her. She’s a student in her final year of school here in Sydney, studying her HSC (I don’t get the Aussie education system), and hoping to hit the Political field at University. She’s a campaigner for equal rights, and having just finished a paper on the ‘representation of Transgender women in mainstream television’, I believe she really knows her stuff. She’s also a painter, with portraits being her painting preference.
