So J.D. Salinger died. Because of his extreme disdain for being in the public eye, we haven't seen any work from him in over 30 years, however....I'm still saddened. Just knowing that he was up there in the Northeast writing, if even for himself, was comforting. A light has officially gone out. Everyone knows his affinity for youth, so I'm posting some photos that celebrate such....enjoy.
Photo by Chrissie White. She's only sixteen, and her photography is just true. 
This is actually me, my bro and my dad. I did not know this photo existed until I was about a year ago, and it made me happy.
Diane Arbus. I love this contact sheet. This kid is just going to town for the camera! The winner was the last photo on this roll of film....and the most demented. Totally her style. I also love the randomness of the photo on the top right...

Lewis Hine. Although, this doesn't really celebrate youth (it's a photo from his collection of child labor photos), it does express it. I love the boy on the right. His stance and glare seems so adult... almost fatherly.

...The best thing, though, in that museum was that everything always stayed right where it was. Nobody'd move...Nobody'd be different. The only thing that would be different would be you....
