Teenagers Belfast

"These portraits are from a series commissioned by Belfast Exposed Gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The remit was to empower these teenagers with a sense of individuality and to locate them within environments that bear no reference to the political struggles or past emblems of this. I wanted to portray these young people as normal teenagers, positive symbols of a new and developing society.", Michelle Sank 2006-06
