This is an ongoing documentation of young women that has come to include close friends and nearby strangers. In these meetings, I aim to make photographs that are telling of the spaces in between moments of consciousness and awareness. With each photograph I am able to understand more about the subject, as well as myself. First I see what it looks like to photograph someone who knows they are being photographed, and after the hype dies down, as grocery lists, weekend plans and assignments filter through their head, they get lost. The photographs allow you to see a stream of consciousness while simultaneously examining the physical features of young women in transition.
