Although there’s never been a time without social and political conflict, recent history has been beset with sociopolitical unrest. Those who pay the heaviest price for our actions are our youth.

In Glassbox, we wanted to explore these often controversial and provocative issues that the youth of today face on a daily basis and how resilient they are in the face of this adversity. We hope the viewer is able to take away an important message of their own interpretation but some of the topics we explore include xenophobia, race relations, the power of women and safety in schools.

The models seen in this shoot were cast from a local performing and visual arts high school. We chose to work with real teenagers to further express the representation of a wide range of genders, ethnicities, and personalities so the message could be conveyed in an authentic way.

To all the youths of in this crazy world, we stand with you in this fragile glass box of life.
