Youth is a captivating and profound phase that leaves a lasting impact on us. It's a blend of self-discovery and uncertainty—a time of both innocence and feeling invincible, filled with wonder that touches us deeply. The genuineness of young individuals, their sincere approach to life, and, most importantly, their ability to have great fun, all resonate with us.
The combination of being both invincible and vulnerable has inspired us to embark on photographic journeys alongside from teenagers. Through the art of capturing moments, we aim to provide a platform for them to express their undefined selves and share their stories with the world.
Lakelove is the story of our youth. It’s a story of love of the lake, freedom and the beginning of a new chapter in life. We spent summer days at this lake, which we called the clay pond because its earth coloured our feet black. Dreaming in the water, a day without end, a bit of chaos, some melancholy and a good song - time stands still. It is the perfect summer.
