Likeness Likeness strives to capture both the adolescent subjects and the medium of photography during a shared period of evolution. This generation of teenagers is playing an important role in directing the future of photography through the adoption of new technologies. In turn, as these adolescents are beginning to assert their independence and form their own identities, photography is playing an ever more important role in the way those identities are established. I have captured these portraits on a smartphone then placed the phone in the enlarger to make a traditional silver gelatin print. This enmeshment of photographic histories and technologies results in portraits that become more unclear and obscure the closer you get to them.
