'A Girl and Her Room' on exhibit
The Southeast Museum of Photography will feature the exhibit "A Girl and Her Room" by Rania Matar from Sept. 14 to Dec. 14.
An artist's talk, book signing and opening reception will be from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 14.
Ms. Matar has produced an exhibition and a book of unique and subtle power. Focusing on contemporary young women from vastly differing cultures in the United States and Lebanon, her project, "A Girl and Her Room," reveals the complex lives of her subjects in the unique setting of the girls' own rooms. Besides the expected cultural and economic differences and similarities that inevitably are drawn out using such an approach, these portraits of the girls and their bedrooms-reveal a dizzying array of personalities, dreams, hopes, wishes and frustrations in settings that are clearly expressions of the girls' individual identities. The nuances shown in each room, and in the portrait of each young woman, reveal an acute photographer's eye for telling detail.
