Umbrage Gallery is having an opening cocktail reception for the release of our latest book, A Girl and Her Room, photographs by Rania Matar. The reception will be on Friday, May 18, 2012 from 6pm ? 8pm. The accompanying exhibition will be on view at our gallery from May 18 ? July 13, 2012. In A Girl and Her Room award-winning photographer Rania Matar captures teenage girls in their most personal spaces ? their bedrooms. Photographing girls from both the United States and Lebanon, these intimate portraits offer an insiders? peek into the girls? values, desires, and fears, and speak more broadly to the universality of the adolescent experience. With essays by Susan Minot and Anne Tucker, A Girl and Her Room is a beautiful book of photography that questions what it means to grow from girl to woman, and how our identities spill over into our material worlds.
