...for in every woman, there is a girl.

'Sleeping Beauty' explores the elusive and uncomfortable feelings of powerlessness. I am interested in the things we hide that hold us back from standing and speaking up.  Positioned in the grass, faces near the ground, the young women and girls in this series lie in a vulnerable position, and at the same time, aware. Throughout my work I explore the role of power and trust on both sides of the camera, identifying with the fear, pride, reticence and strength of the models.  The subject of my photographs is women, but I pose human, universal questions about the fears, contradictions, and uncertainties we all face.
