Being Inbetween: girls of our time – in pictures

A series documenting and exploring the lives of girls aged between 10 and 12; a time of transition between girlhood and young adulthood. Winning the portrait series of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award this year, three portraits were also selected as winners in the British Journal of Photography Openwalls Arles competition.

‘This work and the way it is exhibited is my way of exploring the lives of these girls, giving them power and allowing their voices to be heard. It is celebrating the beauty that is wholly them, one that is sometimes concealed in silence, attitude, embarrassment and self-consciousness,” the photographer, Carolyn Mendelsohn, said.
