SINGLES I EMMANUEL ROSARIO STRANGERS ON A SUMMER SWING, DETROIT 2017. Harlem-based photographer Emmanuel Rosario conjures adventure everywhere he goes. Last summer, while living in Detroit, he stumbled upon a rope-swing while on a bike ride with some friends. A pair of locals joined them, and together they lost themselves to the afternoon as only playmates can. “The one in red pants swung first. He reached into his pocket to toss his cell phone to his friend on the shore. In the foreground, there’s my friend Kelly, watching it all. If she were turned toward the camera, you would see her smiling.” It’s moments like this, caught off the cuff - cigarettes on rooftops, mornings after wild nights - that act as a tribute to never-ending youth. “We have many coming-of-age moments…

teenage kicks

On a cool night late in the summer of 1976, David Godlis stood on the Bowery, a desolate NYC strip synonymous with flophouses and winos who’d lived under the shadow of the Third Avenue El train for more than a century. Although the train had been dismantled, that thoroughfare remained barren and bleak – but for a white awning emblazoned with black letters that announced “CBGB”. At 25, Godlis had returned to his native New York towards the end of 1975 after spending seven years in Boston, where he studied photography alongside Nan Goldin and Stanley Greene at Imageworks. Back in town, he’d pick up the latest issue of The Village Voice and flip to the classified section where he perused the help-wanted listings. It was there that an ad for a…

‘teen activist’. what a label. how about, ‘person who has simply had enough’?

Young people across the world are refusing to be ignored and downtrodden: a generation determined to build something better, something bolder, something new. From the school pupils walking out across the US to advocate for gun control and to end horrific massacres, to those fighting homophobia, racism and bigotry in all its forms. We are the ones leading a movement to stamp out poverty, using social media to draw the world’s focus on what has been hidden from view for far too long. And yes, we’re doing it because we have to, because we’ve been left with no other choice. Ours is a generation that has been truly shafted – by big business and the world’s most powerful elites. We see the inequality that plagues our communities; we’re in no doubt…

zion kelly 17 gun control washington dc

Last September - a month before his 17th birthday - Zion Kelly was walking through the park near his home in Washington DC when a strange man asked him for his phone. Unsettled, Zion bolted and later texted his twin, Zaire, to tell him about the encounter. What Zion couldn’t have known is that the same man – armed with a gun – would kill his brother just two hours later. Eight months on, Zion remembers Zaire as “goofy and always cracking a joke. He was the centre of our friend group.” A shy kid, Zion often relied on Zaire to make friends for both of them. Growing up in the inner city, gun violence was always in the background. A month before Zaire’s death, the twins attended a vigil for a…

jamie margolin 16 climate crisis seattle

Last year, Jamie Margolin became transfixed by news alerts flashing on her phone: mudslides in Colombia, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Maria and, closer to home, “the thick smog that covered Seattle thanks to stronger-than-usual wildfires in Canada.” Instead of simply swiping them away, Jamie decided to do something about it. “It was already in the back of my mind to start a youth mobilisation movement,” she says. “I was nervous to go there, especially since I’m so young. But last summer I realised I have to take action, even if it’s going to be a lot of action.” After messaging friends on Instagram - high-schoolers she’d met at a political summer camp at Princeton - Jamie founded Zero Hour, a youth organisation mobilising around the climate crisis. “We are not a movement that happened…

legally black 17-19 representation london

“I don’t think a lot of people realised that we’re students,” says Liv Francis-Cornibert. “They were messaging us like, ‘Can we work for you?’ And we were like, ‘We’re literally 18…’” “I still live with my mum!” quips Shiden Tekle, sat beside her in the gallery space at the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton. “I had to turn off my Twitter notifications.” The two activists, along with friends Bel Matos da Costa and Kofi Asante, make up Legally Black: a Londonbased campaign group fighting misrepresentation of black people in the media. The collective formed in September 2017, having met at The Advocacy Academy, a social justice fellowship for young people. But they were thrust into the limelight when their first campaign made headline news in March. The idea was simple: take iconic film and…
