Feda Eid is a Lebanese-American photographer and visual artist from Boston, Massachusetts. Her work explores the self-expression of heritage, tradition, culture, identity and the often tense but beautiful space between what is said, what is felt, and and what is lost in translation. She captures these emotions through her bold use of color, textiles, adornment and pop culture references linking the past and present. As the daughter of Lebanese parents who fled the country's civil war in 1982, Feda is guided by her family's American journey and her own childhood growing up as a Muslim in the US. She believes in the telling of personal narratives to broaden our perspectives and to ultimately help us feel the universal emotions that connect us all.
Feda has a BA in sociology from Regis College and studied photography at New England School of Photography. Her work has been exhibited throughout Boston and New York City.
