The youth of todayJune 17th, 2011
It’s been quiet here for while because I have been so busy the last couple of weeks. So there are many things to tell and I want to start today with a series called “The youth of today” which I started alongside some shootings and which turns out to become a much bigger project.
The idea behind “The youth of today” is to portrait 13 to 25 year old kids and young adults just the way they are. Pure, straight and simple. No makeup (exept for the one they already and usually wear), no styling, no props and no retouching in the post-production. These are the rules.
The photos are taken almost immediatley after they come to the studio while we have a little talk to get to know each other.
I really love the results of the first shootings and think about extending this project over the next time. Below you can see a selection of some photos of “The youth of today” – more of it on my portfolio website. Enjoy!
