With A Girl and Her Room award-winning photographer Rania Matar captures teenage girls in their most personal spaces — their bedrooms. Photographing girls from both the United States and Lebanon, these intimate portraits offer an insiders’ peek into the girls’ values, desires, and fears, and speak more broadly to the universality of the adolescent experience. The accompanying monograph (Umbrage 2012), with essays by Susan Minot and Anne Tucker, is a beautiful book of photography that questions what it means to grow from girl to woman, and how our identities spill over into our material worlds.
