A story of bourgeoning school girls entering modelling.

10 teenage models in development. These girls are very young, and are all the beginning of a potential trajectory that could change their lives. I had 30 minutes to shoot each girl, digital and film, and also grab some footage for a short film also titled ‘The Young Ones.’

The inspiration for this shoot was being asked by a youth magazine titled Tidal to collaborate with them. As I am definitely not in the youth category myself anymore, I thought it would be an interesting adventure exploring youth within the fashion world. Rather than a fashion shoot, I shot this in a stripped back and classical portrait style, exploring each girl’s personality and place in the world, rather than playing dress-ups and hiding them within fashion.
