This unique photography and story exhibition will open on Saturday November 21st at 4.30pm at Up the Hill Bed and Breakfast in Mundaring and continue till Sunday 22nd November, from 10am till sundown.
The Bridge Between offers an insight into how pre-teen girls see themselves and their belief systems in relation to themselves, each other and the world around them.
As part of the multimedia exhibition, event-goers will hear from 12 girls who are 12 years old and 12 young women between the ages of 13 and 24.
The project was inspired by the artists' own teenage daughters and aims to capture the journey of girl to woman in an honest and open way.
When asked what has had the most personal impact so far, Jay responded; "What's heartening for me is that each and every one of the girls stands out as a complex, complicated person, not a faceless number in this idea some parts of society have about 'teenagers'.
They are thinking about the world they're inheriting, they have kindness and confusion about how best to take it on, and they're so hopeful for the future. I get goosebumps every time one of the older girls finishes her interview by sending a message back to her younger self. Nearly all of them have said: "Don't worry so much about what other people think of you. You're doing fine. Everything is going to work out OK"".
Kate is particularly drawn to girls transitioning into the next phase of their life and capturing that moment in time in her photography. "In many cultures 12-year-old girls lives start to change drastically.Our girls in our community are also experiencing a lot of changes and we were interested to hear what they had to say about this time of transition in their life.
Twelve is a beautiful age. Through the process of the project, we have captured the girls as they are today and yet you get to see a glimpse of the women they are going to become."
All women will be able to relate to the universal topics explored in the exhibition. If you are a parent, this is a great event to attend with your teenage daughter.
