In these series of photos, titled In Between, Julia Fullerton-Batten explores the transitory period in a teenage girl’s life between girlhood and womanhood. As many of us know, it's a confusing, chaotic time where we're looking for ourselves, where we don't feel comfortable in our skin, just yet. Julia Fullerton-Batten captures these moments in a beautiful but dark manner. As these girls fly through the air, they're "suspended in a state of confusion...as they continually and fragilely adjusts to their changing appearance and a new role in society."
These images are meant to "capture this loneliness and that period of suspension between the two states, at the same time revealing motion in a positive direction. A state of minor ‘chaos’ during this transitory phase is evident from the fallen mirror, the spilt milk, the scattered music score and violin, and the floating books."
