Ewen Spencer's latest series, 'Guapamente Issue 1,' captures the passion between Italian youth. After a mid-summer trip to Naples, Spencer instantly became fascinated by the confidence and ease with which these teenagers interacted with one another.

His series is full of tanned limbs, youthful flesh and gaudy makeup. Most notably, it is permeated with the teenager's raging hormones. The series is very much in line with Spencer's most recognizable work, which tends to explore different subcultures with a renewed energy and refreshing honesty. In this case, Spencer is documenting the most fleeting and ephemeral subculture of them all: youth culture.

If anything, gazing at these images will bring back memories of our own hormone-filled youth (some of which we may prefer to forget).
