We Are Experienced: Portraits of American Teenagers

Danielle Levitt, fashion photographer whose work has graced the pages of GQ & The New York Times mag just to name a couple of publications, has a new book out. She's traveled from coast to coast in the US taking portraits of teenagers she meets. The backgrounds are staged, meaning its not a straight up documentary, however, the kids model in their own clothes. The range of subjects move from wiccans, to punks, snowboarders & skateboarders, band kids to baton twirlers. The book is out now on Powerhouse. See more portraits from the book on NPR.ORG and WE ARE EXPERIENCED.
