Here Is Our Future. The Global T(w)eens Project portrays over 500 unique 11-14 year-olds from 36 countries and explores universality through individuality.

The Global T(w)eens Project is an ongoing artistic investigation that portrays 11-14 year-olds across the globe. Observing the sensitivities of these subjects through posture, gesture, gaze, attitude and clothing, I document this young layer

of our society, between childhood and adolescence, from places that may seem different and distant from one another. I have chosen to shoot the subjects on neutral backgrounds, intentionally removing indicators of location and making each less easy to identify. As the inhabitants of an increasingly globalized world the work in this series intends to remove borders and raise questions about individuality vs. universality.

So far, I have shot over 500 portraits in 36 countries across six continents including Norway, Australia, Pakistan, Italy, Kuwait, Hong Kong, Colombia, Russia, Ghana, India and Japan to name some.
