Mandy-Lyn Antoniou is a Vancouver-based photographer and DJ obsessed with youth. Her vision centers on eccentric beauty and the flakiness of morality. She combines the strength of rebellion with the fluidity of nostalgia. This series will have you longing to dye your hair pink, put holes in your clothes and take to the night to cause some serious damage. The raging riot girl is the super heroine of Anoniou's work.

Mandy-Lyn Antoniou's photographs are rich with edgy and ethereal subjects. The models are tragically beautiful, yet hold a harsh look as if they have something to prove. There's a raging sense of attitude and angry energy, like a pony ready to buck. Thick vices and complex narratives portrayed in the series are engaging and emphasized by the subtle composition style of Antoniou.
