A Girl and Her Room
by Rania Matar
Description

Award-winning photographer Rania Matar captures the interior lives of teenage girls and young women in intimate portraits taken within the personal spaces of her subjects' bedrooms. From Spartan cleanliness to chaotic disarray, stark and paint-chipped to clothing-cluttered and graffitied, each room offers an insider's peek into the mind of the girl who lives there, her values, her desires, and her fears. Photographing girls from both the United States and Lebanon, Matar has succeeded in an unbiased documentary that questions what it means to grow from girl to woman and how our identities spill over into our material worlds.

Publisher's Description
Award-winning photographer Rania Matar’s A Girl and Her Room reveals the lives of girls from two disparate worlds—The U.S. and Lebanon. Set in the girls’ bedrooms—which range from spartan cleanliness to chaotic disarray—these portraits offer an insider’s perspective of not just who these young women are, but the physical spaces that prove to be extensions of their identities.
