In the series a modern hair study, I am a voyeur concentrating on a generation that is not mine. While certain ideals are often relevant to different generations, the ways in which women adorn and modify themselves often indicate the struggles of a young adult with their own ideology and individuality.

Meta House is an internationally-recognized drug and alcohol abuse treatment program for women that has been providing long-term, gender-responsive treatment in Milwaukee since 1963. Their services help women stop using alcohol and drugs, and also assist them in tackling a host of other barriers, such as poverty, unemployment, homelessness and/or unsafe housing, parenting, poor physical health, mental health disorders, and past physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Knowing that the women served at Meta House want to be good mothers, in 1988 the facility became one of the first in the nation to include children in a residential treatment setting. By including children, Meta House is able to provide comprehensive services to counteract the affects of maternal substance use and to break the cycle of addiction.

Tara Bogart is a photographer living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Growing up with artist parents her first glimpses into art started young. There were always coffee table books by photographers such as Deborah Turbeville, Robert Frank, Duane Michals and Sally Mann. As a teenager she began ‘working’ in her Mother’s darkroom and nurtured a lifelong passion for photography. A passion that first led to an internship at The Maine Photographic Workshops and most recently her current position with the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. She has exhibited her personal work in several Midwest venues, including two recent juried shows, one by Catherine Edelman of Catherine Edelman Gallery and the other by photographer Brian Ulrich. Last summer she went to Paris for the first time and the creative journey that began in her parent’s basement took its latest, greatest turn!
