Portraits of fifteen years old girls wearing
their party dress.

In Mexico, as in many Latin American countries, when girls turn fifteen they celebrate a big debut party, a very important event for them and their families.

I spent several months contacting girls in Mexico City who were about to turn fifteen or had just done so. I wanted to portray them in their own homes, wearing their party dresses. I wanted to show both their excitement at being princesses for a day and the real world in which they live and grow up.
