As the artist Noorann Matties explains in her statement, this series explores female beauty rituals as deeply introspective and even meditative moments that we experience in our daily lives.

Forced to examine ourselves in ways many normally avoid, Rituals as a project sought to capture the moment in which our lives become devoid of distraction and we become intimately aware of ourselves. By photographing people’s personal beauty rituals I attempted to capture this awareness, this intimacy that occurs only when one is forced to examine their own body, the most basic thing that is theirs, and build upon it.”
