Between: a photographers daughter documented in portraits

Photographer: Nadia Moreau Stone

Artist Statement:

The desire to be all grown up, but she still believes in unicorns.
My daughter is 8 and a half years old.
She likes barbies and dolls.
She also likes putting on make up and loves to play the grown up.

She is 8… but she wants to be 5 or 15 ...

She is in the in-between: my little girl and a teenager at the same time.

It's very tangible: the transformation of her personality, her body, her complex behaviour. It is what I want to remember. Capturing her childhood innocence with the teenage attitude shining through.

I started this project last year and continue shooting her through these developmental years.
