Holly Andres reveals only part of the mysterious story behind the lush and saturated images that make up Sparrow Lane. Calling to mind both Nancy Drew cover art and traditions of narrative photography, these theatrically staged and richly metaphorical images allude to the the loss of innocence and the search for self that transpires in the transition from adolescence to womanhood. Andres' young heroines explore domestic spaces and wooded landscapes, forever searching for clues to a mystery that lies just beyond the edge of the frame.
