Liminal explores the transitory zone of adolescence through photographs of a group of 15 year old girls. It extends and build upon my existing body of work which concerns the exploration of permanence and impermanence, an examination of borders (both visible and invisible) and those places where one environment gives over to another (and the inevitable tensions and contradictions that arise in such environments).

The derivation of liminal is “limen”, Latin for “threshold,” that is, the bottom part of a doorway that must be crossed when entering a building; it is defined as: “of or relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process, occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.”

These photographs are cropped from the initial portraits I took of these girls. In looking at those portraits, I was struck by how expressive their hands were, often in stark contrast to the expressions on their faces.
