Generation Z :: a portraiture series

Generation Z is classified by being born after 1990. They are slowly influencing the world but some argue that they are being influenced by it to a greater extent than any other generation to date.  They have questions about their safety in America, what financial hurdles will await them and what jobs will be available once they are ready to enter the work force. 

Every generation has its problems and ultimately comes up with their own solutions, and even invents ways to prevent them. Over the last 4 years I have seen this glowing optimism and inventiveness in my students faces. This portraiture series started for fun but has evolved into celebrating them, and their future. It will be amazing to see the innovations that Gen Z creates and how life will unfold for all of us when they are at the helm.
