Youth is defined as the period between childhood and adult age… As I am the mother of a 16y old… I had a subject at home… It was my starting point. Around the world, the terms youth, adolescent, teenagerkid, and young person are interchanged, often meaning the same thing. Youth is the stage of constructing the self-concept and the time in which one makes choices… I was very eager to capture those tensions due to the importance of this development stage…
I was confronted to the reality of this contrast… The body language and the playfulness of my models and at the same time their inherent melancholy. This is an ongoing project and process.
