Did you know?

This could be the room of a teenager in the United States or Europe.


In the series A Girl and Her Room, Matar photographed each young woman “in the personal space she was curating for herself, where she was exploring her own sense of identity,” says the artist. The sitter’s bedroom becomes almost a thought bubble of the girl’s mind and self-image.
