Giselle Noelle Morgan
I'm a twenty year-old girl. And as long as I can remember, I've been told to "be a lady: keep your emotions blood, and angst to yourself." Everything that teenage girls don't want to be visible is visible, whether it's acne or menstrual blood, and the things that we'd prefer to be seen, like our heroic dreams, beauty, or sexual organs remain hidden inside. My photography is meant to demonstrate what it's like in the mind of a girl transitioning into the autonomy of adulthood; the inner dialogue in the early morning, the heartbreak after a perfect drive ends, the deconstruction of childhood, and the constant change of personality, diet, and feelings. I aim to give a sense of nostalgia, longing for escape, and silence in a still image.
