Through daily portraits, this five-year project charts the physical and emotional changes of two women at the opposite ends of the “young woman” spectrum. One was moving with excitement into adolescence; the other, with trepidation, into middle age. Each day, Elaine and Julia stopped their separate activities and met in their living room to pose for a portrait. Through the lens of the camera, these moments have come to define the years of their shared experience.
