What occurs when youth and innocence are thrown into a world full of heightened awareness, political turbulence, and social injustice?
"Young American" is inspired by Robert Frank’s, “The Americans”, Ryan McGinley’s “Early”, Olivia Bee’s “Kids in Love”, Nan Goldin’s “The Ballad of Sexual Dependency”, and Larry Clark’s “Teenage Lust”.
"Young American" is a melodrama of our youth. We are restless, we are reckless. The world is turbulent and unsure, and here we are, reveling in the madness of it all.
This is the story of our youth.
