Those Teens Part 1

with 4 comments

With the present series of posts. I bring together photographs made from 1958 to 2014 — 56 years — highlighting teenagers from cultures worldwide.  Where it is sometimes not obvious if someone is technically a teen, or a bit younger or older, I have opted to be inclusive.

Wide differences of time and place, class and society are obvious in this series. More and more, though, my way of seeing has been to look past the external differences — toward the humanity, the soul that unites.

  1. Thanks for sharing Bill. It’s interesting to see the similarities – as you say, the humanity. I particularly like the links between the second, third and fifth images. Everyone needs to drink after all!
