For some reason, the teenage years are being idolized to an extent almost inverse to their actual attractiveness. “Joseph Szabo has been photographing his teen-age students for the past twenty-five years, and has perfectly captured the ambivalence of that time of life. As a high school teacher of photography, he takes seriously their pretentions, passions, and confusions, and he knows intimately how students put on, act up, behave, and misbehave.” Well, hmm, OK; the photos are very nice, though.
