15 is an in-between age; the struggle between leaving childhood and becoming an adult is in its prime. I chose to photograph five 15 year old boys for this work, which was inspired by my own brother and watching his attempts to forge an identity for himself. I spent time talking to them about their interests, their worries and came away not simply with a photograph but with new appreciation for them as individuals. Each boy is photographed in their room, their sanctuary and many thanks to John, Tobias, David, Jeremy and Darcy for their time and for sharing a glimpse of their lives.
