RJ Shaughnessy photography is proof that pictures really are worth a thousand words. His snapshots of today’s youth capture an emotion and feeling that is visceral and beyond words.
The idea for his photography comes from looking back at photos from the 60s and 70s. Looking at those photos, one can get a feel for what that time was like, how people thought, how people dressed and how people felt. These pictures attempt to embody a culture.
With this idea in mind, Shaughnessy began his work to create the same memories of the current generation. His work shows us that today’s youth have their own spirit and style. One day, these photographs may induce a nostalgic feeling in those who look at them.
