The images are taken in schools K.Yoland attended as a child. Revisiting these spaces she asked different girls of the appropriate age to take her place.

Shooting when the schools were empty; either during the holidays or weekends, the spaces were often undergoing construction, deliveries or even demolition. Shot wide, the spaces are vast and empty. The girls stand or sit with confidence whilst they look at the camera or environment with direct engagement.

Almost ghost-like, one or two girls are often shown in a space made for many (even hundreds). Whether in playgrounds, on stages or just rooms filled with chairs, the locations hint at a larger populace and specific activities or events. Alone yet at ease, the girls stand out as separate from their environment and insititutions.
