Lawrence Community Shelter houses approximately 25 homeless individuals each night. In October 2006, with the help of the director, we opened a salon and photo studio within the shelter. Local salons and community members donated beauty products.
Beauty in Transition is an installation including video documentation of the hair transformation process within the shelter’s salon and audio interviews of women discussing the difficulties of retaining health and beauty in a period of extreme transition in their lives.
