In the fall of 1985 Karen Marshall met Molly Grover, a bright, exuberant 16-year-old high school junior and started to photograph her and her friends. Karen herself coming of age at the height of the 1970s women’s consciousness-raising movement was interested in how the next generation felt about being a woman. Ten months later Molly died in a car accident. Karen decided to keep the project going and continued to photograph Mollies friends, Jen G., Blake, Leslie, Jen P. and Zoe.
The book is divided in two parts. Part one is showing black and white analogue prints of the ten months that Karen photographed Molly and her friends. Part two is showing how Mollies friends have dealt with her death and how their lives moved on. It consists of photo’s, diary writings, recordings, video stills, family photos and social media posts. The feeling of time passing is shown by the evolution of the original media carriers that Karen used, from Reel to Reel tape and Hi 8 Video till usb sticks.
