Five photographers exploring the high times and uncertainty of youth

Wulnerability, narcissism, hedonism, etc.

[G]reat photographers of youth culture like Larry Clark and Ryan McGinley are remarkable for their ability to capture the rarefied cocktail of bravado, vulnerability, narcissism, hedonism and uncertainty embodied by the young. And it’s a photographic aesthetic that has caught on.

A new age of young photographers have turned the lens on themselves and their friends, capturing an instinctive vision of what it means to be young. See the gallery below for five of our favourites.
