Rania Matar: A Girl and her Room
Portfolio Introduction
As a mother of a teenage girl I watch with fascination her passage from girlhood into adulthood, with all the complications it entails. An adult personality is shaping up and a self-consciousness is replacing the carefree world she had previously live in. I photographed her with her girlfriends and quickly realized that they were very aware of each other's presence.

Hence emerged the idea of photographing each girl alone in her bedroom: an area that is hers and that she controls, in an outside world that is often intimidating. The room invariably reflected the girl's personality and the two worlds she is navigating.
