Teenagers Belfast

These portraits are from a series called which was commissioned by Belfast Exposed Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The remit was to empower these teenagers with a sense of individuality and to locate them within environments that bear no reference to the political struggles or past emblems of this. I wanted to portray these young people as normal teenagers, positive symbols of a new and developing society although still showing signs of a specific culture in the dress, the buildings, the light, the landscapes.
