‘becoming’
ABOUT THE PROJECT

My current series is called “becoming” and depicts girls between 12 and 13 years old.
I find this to be a fascinating time as it marks that important transitional period from childhood to adolescence.  I am attempting to catch those last moments of innocence before that sense of “knowing” arrives.  While my charming models have invariably shared a self-confident persona with me, I recognize that they are also volatile and unpredictable. They can be mature, affectionate and delightful, but also self-centred, moody, surly and backtalking.  As this is a liminal stage when the individual is “neither here nor there; they are betwixt and between” (Victor Turner) I will be including portraits where the model shows a pensive, thoughtful moment, or is being goofy and silly as well as images of the girls being competent and powerful.  Being a teenager has never been easy and I wish to portray some of the inconsistencies I have noted as these young women deal with the challenge of feeling invincible and invisible at the same time.
