The years of being a teen are an often thrilling and torturous era in a person’s life. But what’s most interesting is that teens are often one of the best representations of a specified era. Joseph Bellows’ latest exhibition does well in exemplifying this.
The Teen Years will feature a selection of both vintage and contemporary photographs that address the physical, social, and emotional aspects of adolescence, and the formation of identity. The photographs included in the exhibition present a collective portrait of youth: its awkwardness, innocence, fury, elation, beauty and trepidation.
Photographs by Joseph Sterling, Edward Sturr, Enrico Natali, Elaine Mayes, Bevan Davies, Nacio Jan Brown, Melissa Shook, Harry Ibach, Duncan McCosker, Christine Osinski, Joan Albert, Sage Sohier, Mark Steinmetz, John Myers, Andrea Modica, Bill Yates, Roger Vail and others will be included.
Opening with a reception on July 9th, from 6-8pm, the public will be able to reflect upon their youth until August 26th, 2016.
