“This is 18” aims to capture what life is like for girls turning 18 in 2018 across oceans and cultures — in Lagos, Nigeria, Mexico and Mississippi, Ramallah and Russia, Bangladesh and the Bronx.
But while girls have long been the subject of the photographer’s lens, they have far less often been behind it. Young women photographers were asked to document girls in their communities — taking the photos and conducting the interviews themselves. Each photographer was paired with a professional mentor to guide them through the process.
The result is a celebration of girlhood around the world — across 12 time zones and 15 languages, featuring 21 subjects and 22 photographers.
