"BECOMING IS a continuum of Rania Matar’s work from the past several years, and it’s a feast to view her multiple projects together. Through this collection of portraits, Matar leads us through many stages in the life of a woman. She photographs girls and women in the US and in her native Lebanon. She notes: “These are not meant to be a comparison, on the contrary, as the lines blur quickly. Regardless of place, background and religion, women everywhere seem united by similar feelings and aspirations.”
