Thank you for your responses, Shan!

It was the honesty of her images that stood out amongst the photos in my Instagram explore page. Found her page and loved the consistency throughout and mad I had just missed her show at the Baltimore Museum of Art (BMA). Her responses show exactly this sentiment. Instead of links to her sites for traffic, she requested I share only the following two links:

-This is for an upcoming exhibit at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC. The show is a traveling exhibit, first exhibited at the Annenberg Space For Photography. She told me it is the film in the link that she wanted people to see.

-This (associated with BMA) shows some of her handwritten personal notes and memories about each specific photograph and sitter…showing more of her process & more importantly the values that she shoots with.
