For the D&AD Student Awards, Dazed & Confused magazine wanted entrants to create their own portrait of contemporary youth. A single image that would be just as relevant in a decade. An image that captures this period of time, with determination and attitude. Shooting friends, peers. Capturing reality, fantasy, people with interesting stories, people with great ideas. Something real. Avoiding the clichés. Seizing the chance to define the visual language of my world. I explored the youth associated traits of innocence, naivety, freedom and the natural beauty of the human form. Juxtoposing the vulnerability and resilience of modern day women, this project supports the feminist movement of the 21st century.
