"Human Shadow: Indonesia Transgenders" is photo documentary enttily by myhand.

began two year ago, as my reflection about transgenders  struggle in Indonesia

The Human Shadow photo project a documentary about struggle and  daily life of transgenders  in Indonesia, a one of popuus moslem country. Where rejection and the expulsion of society was still going on against transgenders. 

the state was the main violator of human rights. There are many laws and regional ordinances that discriminate againsttransgenders people.

A sample case where a hardline religious group denies the existence of transgenders , their rejection coming about with violence.

The stigma and repugnance by society  made transgendered people become a closed group.

According data from transgender organizations, there were about 7 million transgendered Indonesians in 2008. That number could rise and fall: about 34 percent of them have HIV/Aids.

Due to discrimination by employers in the formal and informal sectors, they are forced onto the street, becoming sex workers and infected by sexually-transmitted diseases.

Now, transgenders struggle to demand rights for work and health care and fail to push the government to make legal protections. But their existence in indonesia ranges from the city-based Islamic rule in Aceh to the inland tribes of Papua. They can be seen, Especially for those in parts of the world where transgenderphobia is still prevalent.

The story telling this project about all aspects  activity of  transvestites likes  health conseling, daily life, education, work and profession, transvestites in indigenous communities, violence and social comunity,and  transvestites struggle to campaign about human rights.

The Human Shadow photo project will display about religious, leaders, activists, social, and public communities reaction  toward existence of transgender in Indonesia.
