Photographers Santiago and Mauricio Sierra are behind the lens of 'This is Not America,' an editorial that examines various youth subcultures across the United States. Gracing Tush Magazine's Spring/Summer 2016 issue, this candid portrait series pairs images of fast food and packaged goods with those of unique young adults who aren't afraid to express their signature sense of style.
Hair and makeup for This is Not America are courtesy of Tomi Kono and Maud Laceppe who opt for youth-centric styles like heavy braids, blunt bangs and even pastel pink locks. When examining this editorial's beauty looks, heavy brows and bare-faced cosmetics take center stage.
