the pictures

This page will show all the pictures made during the youroteens project in the 28 countries of the EU

Teenagers across Europe; where do they live, what are they thinking and dreaming about? What does their future look like? How do their lifestyles differ?  These questions triggered two Dutch artists to document young European citizens between the ages of 12 and 18 in a series of photographic portraits. They call their project YOUROTEENS. Randomly chosen teenagers are portrayed in their private spaces. Handwritten notes about their lives and dreams and additional snapshots of their surroundings complete the picture.

YOUROTEENS will be shown throughout Europe as a traveling exhibition in 2016 and will be published as a book in 2016. The creators envision YOUROTEENS as developing, over time, into a European network of involved companies, policymakers and sponsors.
