Rebecca Greenfield's Breathtaking 'Coming Of Age' Photo Series (PHOTOS)

Rebecca Greenfield's "Coming of Age" photo series spotlights girls on the brink of womanhood.

In the Arizona desert, the sun sets over a stoic girl in a fringed, beaded robe, her hair bedecked with feathers. In Pennsylvania, giddy young things in satin and sequins pile into a limo, corsages on their wrists. In Times Square, a smiling girl in a tiara and ball gown poses with some of her tuxedo-clad friends and relatives. Each of these scenes was captured by photographer Rebecca Greenfield, 37, as part of her stunning photo project "Coming of Age."
