"Between Girls: A Passage To Womanhood. The Creation of A Thirty-Year Project"

Karen Marshall (I)

Saturday, March 11 - 10:00AM to 10:45AM
Orange AB

In 1985 I began documenting the friendship of a group of teenage girls in New York City. My intention was to look at the emotional bonding that happens between girls and consider these emblematic relationships in photographs. An endeavor that began with photography evolved into a 30-year meditation on friendship, expanding to include audio, channeled video, collage, and a collection of small books and ephemera that explore the archive. My work is about relationships, women who transform from girls to young women into womanhood, and about photography, which is between the framed moment and the rapid movement of new technology.
