Portraits of Youth is a visual exploration into modern social ideals of body image and gender, specifically in regards to female youth. Inspired by photorealism, photographer Max Cornwall and stylist Beatriz de Cossio communicate the many pressures faced by female adolescents with regards to beauty conformity circulated in modern culture.

Using classical photo reportage as a tool to capture relaxed and effortless imagery, the story counteracts and contrasts the contemporary hyper-real visual realm, as it attempts a dissection of stereotypical knowledge and symbolism surrounding youth.
