"The Lost Generation"
"The Lost Generation" is a collaborative project between myself and 11 other young adults who are currently unemployed and/or trying to find a job they are qualified to do. Using newspaper format I have asked each sitter to write about their experiences, to accompany their portrait. I was inspired by the many collective statistics and the general term 'lost generation' duped by the mainstream media, to explore the individual experiences and using portraiture in combination with personal writings to raise awareness of the vast complexities behind youth unemployment.
