Teenage Wildlife

In this longform, ongoing series photographic artist Morganna Magee presents portraits of teenage girls photographed over a 5-year period. The images seek to humanize a generation caught between traditional expectations of teenage-hood and the strong push by 21st century society to grow up fast. Boyfriends remain transient in the photos, always playing secondary roles in the girls’ lives as the girls grow in front of the camera.

In a world of social media, easy gratification and uncertainty, this body of work engages with young and vulnerable women whom are rarely given such a spotlight, asking the viewer to challenge traditional held notions around the complexities growing up.
