Ewen SpencerYoung Love
In the year 2000, Ewen Spencer was commissioned by Graham Rounthwaite at British music, fashion and culture magazine The Face to create a series focusing on youth clubs across the United Kingdom. From Cornwall to Lancashire, Spencer photographed teens as they drank, danced and fell in and out of love and lust. The resulting images have now been published in a big, glossy, ‘year 2000’ book by STANLEY/BARKER, designed by The Entente. The book will be available from KK Outlet or online from stanleybarker.co.uk.
“Today we stay younger longer and become grown up sooner. The successes of making any sort of story around youth is to recognise that we’ve all been there at sometime in our lives. Being a Teenager is life a concentrated moment of the human condition – all of the successes and pitfalls all being played out in one messy drama.” – Ewen Spencer
