Rite of Passage

Rite of Passage by Carolina Dutruel, APSNZ

This image "Rite of Passage" is part of my series Growth, a collection of images which portray the sometimes difficult, and yet tender, journey to self-realization. "Rite of Passage" depicts the inevitable moment in life when we all strike down the idealized image of our parents and begin the search for our own identity. I set out to tell a story, treading the line between shocking and intriguing, hoping to provoke a reaction.
