Commencing this project without completely understanding her own intentions, Zoe has been unremittingly photographing young females between the ages of six and twelve to create this ongoing body of work. Shortly after beginning, Zoe began to explore the gaze within photography; however, as time progressed it became seemingly obvious that each individual she photographed resembled her own adolescence in different ways. Zoe began to recognise her curiosity for the transition between childhood and adulthood, relating it to her time growing up as a female. Taking her photographs quickly has helped to avoid her subjects posing, evidentially escaping a feeling of pretence and revealing a candid, truthful set of portraits, each of which bring to mind her own childhood.
