About the series I Really Need Some Personal Space:

"I find the age between 18 and 22 to be particularly interesting as traits of both adolescence and adulthood are exhibited simultaneously.  To try to capture this duality I spent a year photographing my youngest sister.  I have always felt that my sister and I are able to communicate best through my photographing her.  My sister has never been a very communicative person but I think that by letting herself be photographed she is communicating something of herself to the outside world.  I hope that this series will give some clues to her story while giving space to the viewer to insert their own story or to create their own narrative."
