With “Fotomonday“, each week we showcase the work of women photographers from around the world.
The photos from ‘March’ are a series of photographs taken on film that were the result of having spent a large chunk of time in a small town in Texas, during a transformative time in which I felt like I was jumping from one stage of life – my early early twenties – to another, my mid twenties. March is an in between month, usually hot and cold, rainy and sunny, not technically winter or spring, and exists in a constant in between state, which is the exact feeling that these photographs explore. It’s this in between state that has been the mark of growing up, and I’m continually fascinated by the process of growing up, and find that this theme is present in some way or another in almost all of my work.
