The photo series titled Walkabout by Mathieu Young shows that this rite of passage that is undertaken by male Australian Aborigines can extend to other cultures and take on a different meaning. Although it might not actually be considered a true walkabout, in theory it holds a similar essence.

Embarking on a four-day, 20-mile journey through the wilderness known as Los Angeles with a large strobe light and camera in hand, this native L.A. photographer snaps all of the interesting, unique and overall life the city has to offer. Mostly centered on portraits of L.A. residents and guests, Walkabout by Mathieu Young captures the effect various neighborhoods have on its people. As Young observes, "It was a remarkable experience to watch the city's changing landscape reflected in the faces of denizens." Stats for Photographic Journey Portraits Trending: Older & Warm
