Rania Matar: A Girl and Her Room

I came across the photographer Rania Matar today and her current series, released in May 2012, called A Girl and Her Room.  Rania photographed girls in thier most private of places, thier rooms, during the most impressionable years of life.  Through these pictures we see girls in transition from girls to women and a preoccupation with beauty, insecurity, and self identity.   http://girlroom.raniamatar.com/reviews.php

Mary,
I would love to see this exhibit! Thank you for sharing. It was touching just to read the reviews. I think of myself as a young girl and how vulnerable I was, always self judging, and never seeming to measure up. It is only with age and a little self security I don't feel like I have to have make-up on to leave the house.
Nice! Tajuana
