Description
When Block was starting out as a photographer, she visited the summer camp she had attended as a child and photographed some of the girls there, including her daughter. Captivated by their interactions and their potential, she decided to photograph them as adults to find out who they had become. Putting the two portraits side-by-side, the artist leaves it for us to decide how much we can read about a person by looking at her picture.
