Alison Malone is a photographer based in New York City. Her work examines the nuanced relationship between people and how they exist in the world. She is constantly exploring new ways to observe the significance of the everyday occurrences in people, places and objects that surround them while searching for the subtle threads that connect us all.
Her current body of work is titled “The Daughters of Job”. It portrays a secret society of girls ranging in age from 10 to 20 years old that are the daughters and granddaughters of Freemasons. The images are concerned with the psychology of identity formation through traditional ritual and role-playing within a patriarchal organization. They observe the girls in the society and the spaces where these rites occur.
