Raimond Wouda has photographed numerous secondary schools in the Netherlands. Forget the learning process; this documentary is about the interaction between individual pupils, group dynamics and the discovery of identity. He avoids classrooms and focuses instead on the kids’ hang outs. Lockers and school parties prevail. The high vantage points allow the very-much-alive youth culture - of both the individual and the group - to be captured in a single shot.
