Aline Smithson of Lenscratch highlights the series Growing Up Girl. She writes:
I was glad to have a chance to revisit Tira Khan’s project, Growing Up Girl, at Fotofest’s The International Meeting Place Reviews. As a participant observer of those under her own roof–in particular, her three daughters–she has a ring side seat to witness and synthesize contemporary girlhood. The series focuses on the exploration of self, long afternoons on the couch, piles of laundry, endless grooming, birthdays, friendships, music, and the trying on of future personas. Tira’s work is authentic in it’s observations, giving us a window into her family’s life, but universal in it’s description of growing up female.
Select images from this project are currently featured on the New England version of The Fence and the Cambridge Art Association National Show, and the project was selected by Ffotogallery as highlight of Fotofest Biennial 2018 in Houston by David Drake, director of Ffotogallery in Wales.
