Blake Fitch spent her Light Work residency creating a museum-ready portfolio of her ongoing project, Expectation of Adolescence. Her residency allowed her the focused opportunity to print, edit and prepare this project for exhibition. Her series, now in its tenth year, focuses on her youngest sister Katie and their cousin Julia, documenting their journey into adulthood as it reveals the formation of physical and emotional identities in the context of societal expectations.
