The Lebanese photographer has proven herself to
be a keen observer of daily life and private realms. For her 2012 series, Matar
photographed her female subjects in their bedrooms, be they in the U.S. or
Lebanon. Some rooms were neat and orderly; others, chaotic. All were rich with bric-a-brac
and colorful details—books, nail polish, stuffed animals, religious icons, rock star posters—that revealed deeply personal aspects of the girls’ varied lives.
