  • Damian

  • dale

    It’s so refreashing to see work done, whether music or art, that tells you something about the persons background. Makes it more relatable and you can learn more about other people and cultures in addition of having something nice to look at and listen to.

    Looking forward to more work derived from peoples backstories.

  • This is absolutely amazing. I was stoked by his older work but he’s going to new heights with these recent pieces!!

  • lapetitefaon

    WHOA. Stunning.

  • TwinPhoton

    I wonder, with its mix of traditional shapes and this explosion of color. Not to mention that the calm and observance of old, seems to move into a this new era…

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Click here to see our previous post of Dror’s work. More images from “15/20” below.
