Really excellent book by Heyman in the super scarce hardcover issue. From the back flap: “Growing Up Female is a journey into self-discovery. Here, in these few photographs, in this sparse text, is the sum and substance of the female experience – the conflicts and doubts, the challenge and growth in being a woman. Here is sharing and loneliness, tenderness and tedium. And here, too, are questions in search of solutions, women in search of themselves.” Recommended for fans of Szabo, Erica Lennard, MacAdams etc.
