Producer of a film starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, photographer Lillian Birnbaum explores adolescence in a new show based on her 2008 book.

Birnbaum’s photographic series of girls between childhood and womanhood — shot over five years — subtly captures moments of rebellion, reflection, revelry, and bliss. The images, from her 2008 book Transitions, are showing in New York City through August 14.

She further investigated youth with the 2008 Rhys Meyers film The Children of Huang Shi, depicting a journey to save orphans in war-torn 1930s China.
