Dressing Room

There is something endlessly interesting about watching a woman prepare herself for the stage, or for daily life; there is something sacred and personal about the space in which she does this.

This isn't a dressing room shot, but I have a hard time resisting ballerinas.

As a little girl, I always took great pleasure in watching my mother put on her lipstick and pick out something  to wear for a date with my father or for a dinner party. It is a special ritual between mother and child, the child watching in awe, and the mother genuinely concerned with the child's opinion.

The way a person's face changes when they look in the mirror can be both telling and mystifying.

There is nothing more fun than getting ready with girlfriends.
