As I progress into adulthood, time seems to be more transitory than ever before. Because moments are so fleeting, I strive to appreciate and remember these vital times of my youth before they are forever lost to memory–blurring as life passes by. With this photo series, I seek to preserve the moments, experiences, and relationships of the present and how they shape our lives through memory and nostalgia. These photos replicate memories in their vibrancy and youthfulness by making use of bright colors, glowing atmospheres, and candid captures, while seemingly appearing as if they were stills from a film. They reflect the dynamic nature of youth and passing time. The purpose of “Youth Ultra” is to open up this world of past experiences and to make them tangible pieces of art, capable of being revisited. ♦
