Award-winning photographer Rania Matar captures the interior lives of

teenage girls in intimate portraits shot within the personal spaces of their bedrooms. From stark and paint-chipped to clothing-cluttered and graffitied, the rooms offer an insider's peek into the girls' values, desires, and fears. Photographing girls from both the United States and Lebanon, Matar's unbiased documentary questions what it means to grow from girl to woman, and how our identities spill over into our material worlds. With essays by Susan Minot, author of Monkeys and Evening, and Anne Tucker, curator of photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
