Are we at our most 'human' during our teenage years?
We have straightforward answers to life's problems and our emotions are still in their raw state. We are big enough and we are strong enough.
In a way, photographing any person between the ages of nine and twenty-three, is like photographing wild tigers! Generally I am a stranger to them, and yet they are allowing me to photograph them during a time in their lives where they really prefer to be very private or surround themselves with others of their own age.
To get natural, unforced images of teenagers is an amazing thing and something that will be prized above their baby photos forever:)
