As young people trying to forge a path in order to realize an emotionally and financially satisfying lifestyle, we desperately seek guidance, from our parents and teachers, but most often from our peers who are at the same time desperately searching for answers. The result of this paradox is an entirely trial-and-error way of life. These photographs empathetically explore this lifestyle, its successes, failures, and absurdities. My presence, my own transient interests, desires and anxieties are alive in the photos in relation to those of the subjects. The lives of the subjects are un-extraordinary, but they too have volatile desires and anxieties. All we truly have are our relationships to each other and our environment; our emotions lie between good and bad, interest and boredom, desire and anxiety.
