julia fullerton-batten’s The awkwardness Of Teenage Girls

London based photographer Julia Fullerton-Batten’s three part project centering around teenage girls tells the surreal story of the transition of teenage girls into womanhood. Each shot captures the lives and feelings of young girls as they change from relative innocence to a heightened awareness of their future adult life. For all of the images Batten chose to street cast girls for her models. Deliberately avoiding the use of professional models. Julia states that the slight awkwardness of her untrained models emphasizes the freshness and naturalness evident in her images.
