entry arrow11:21 PM | The Art of the Teenage Wasteland

Maybe it’s because I’m reading Jon Savage’s groundbreaking exploration of the formation of the culture of adolescence in Teenage. Or maybe because I just finished watching Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring (2012). But sometimes, the art of Terry Richardson, Larry Clark, Harmony Korine, Brett Easton Ellis, and often Steven Meisel (especially in 1995) clumped together — distinctive for their almost salacious eye on teenage white-trashy abandon, which celebrates and condemns it at the same time — frankly scares me. Or at least unsettles me.











But maybe to unsettle is the point.

Or maybe I’m just getting old, hahaha.
