James Greenhalgh’s newest photo book: Year 14 - Honouring friendship and the importance of documenting your late adolescence.
I have been woking on this project since the start of my course: (BA) Photography at UAL: London College of Communication. The book features friends I’ve known throughout school along with new friends I’ve met through visiting universities. Year 14 also includes research images from photographers that have inspired me throughout this project.
I hope you enjoy!

“Photography is the medium capable of creating and expressing so many things. For me, one of the main ability that photography has is the ability to sure the personality of the subject whilst simultaneously indirectly showing the personality and relationship of the photographer to the subject and audience.
After reading the works of Ryan McGinley and Larry Clark I realised that this moment in time for me, this stage of late adolescents when me and my friends are stumbling into the ‘real’ adult world is so rare and if it is not captured how will we accurately be able to really live and reflect upon this time in our life.
One of my biggest fears when ending A-levels was that knew my friends look at it go off to university make new friends and forget about each other but three visiting my friends for weekends away I’ve noticed that nothing has changed at all it’s as if we have just carried on another year at college and remained great friends.”
