Those Teens Part 4

with 3 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.

  2. body{font-size:10pt;font-family:arial,sans-serif;background-color:#ffffff;color:black;}p{margin:0px;}WordPress.comHi Bill,Here’s to history: I’ve been enjoying getting your posts for a long time now… Here’s something in return..It’s one of my favorite memories / photos.I had an assignment from World Book many years (45 or so)  ago, to shoot the birth of a calf. Over my wife’s objections, I took my son who was 7-8 along with me.As it turned out it was a breach birth.. difficult, long, and at times rather intense..My son who brought his “brown” 1955 polaroid camera along is still holding a wet polaroid, waving it in the sun to dry it off… wandered off a bit and I shot this photo. My camera case in the background sitting on a log.Kindest personal  regards, Marshall Berman

  3. These exquisite images make my heRt ache in the most wonderful way. So much strife in the news these fays yet look back at the faces, the emotion in the eyes, the playful stances, the loss of self into a favorite passtime and they are the same. We are the same. Just gorgeous. Thank you.
