For the top portion of this collage I used a self-portrait I shot during an emotional time when I was going through a break-up. For the bottom portion of this collage, I used an image of my mother. In this photograph, my older sister is giving my mother a makeover and her hair is pinned back as my sister expertly applies with her fingers various beauty products. My mother's beauty regimen was so fascinating to me when I was a child, and as a grown woman, looking in the mirror daily, I can't help but see and feel so much overlap with the way my mother viewed herself, her beauty, her regimens, and her woman-ness.
