During which life-phase do we make the most difficult decisions, develop our individual personalities and discover our skills? It could only be during adolescence. Danielle Levitt’s first monograph is all about this topic. A beautiful series of documentary portraits shows a great variety of adolescents in various urban, suburban and rural settings. Football stars, girls entering beauty pageants, punks, snowboarders and all kinds of other groups and individuals who are turning into themselves: the choices made about clothing, thought systems and behaviour underpin this book. Experience American youth culture in its natural habitat. Say hello to the next generation!
