Behind Closed Doors is a series of images that convey some of the different kinds of emotions experienced by young people. She wanted to explore the kinds of emotions that people sometimes do not share with others. She conducted some interviews to start to think about the kinds of emotions to portray. She has used her friend as her model to construct a series of images that use light and shade and the models pose to convey these different emotions. They are all set against the backdrop of her secondary school.
