Cool Youth
Growing up in the States is not easy. The pressure to "fit in" is sometimes a daunting experience for a lot of American kids. You must be seen to be "Cool" at all times, from the clothes you wear, to the way you walk, to the music you listen to, and most of all having "Attitude". Fashion and Advertising play a major role in the conditioning of the young vulnerable minds of America.
This body of work explores American youth culture. "How can I be Cool?" Through portraits of various kids, from White, Black, Hispanic etc. these images intend to show how fashion, advertising and the emergence of the Hip Hop Culture has brought all races of American Youth together under one banner of "Cool".
