I took my cousin shopping for clothes for her dead lover to wear in his casket so their son could have closure and remember him in a respectable manner since his fucking dick head dad didn’t care what he was in and my other cousin just called me a bitch because I went and did that instead of curling her weave for her. Oh did I mention she stole my cousins car last night and totaled it to go buy drugs? And stole money out of it that was Lou’s.
Fuck today. Goodnight.
This series explores issues surrounding young women in their transformation from adolescence to womanhood. It seeks to address ideas that begin at birth and continue throughout their adult life, such as misinformation on sexuality and their own bodies, to gendered expectations of what’s ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. A mixture of still lives and self portraits, these images become isolated in a hot pink, hyperbolic world, setting out to represent this constructed culture for young women.
Shot with a Hasselblad, Portra 160.
