This week we feature the work of Collin LaFleche, Capricious No.14 — Masculine contributor and exhibiting artist in our opening show at Capricious 88, 17 Nov – 2 Feb. The work selected comes from his series Right After.
Of this series LaFleche recalls:
In late 2006 I met a group of high school seniors on their way towards graduation and struggling with the transition from adolescence into adulthood… The resulting images—of teenagers running through the streets, kissing on a front porch, watching fireworks over Manhattan—were candid moments of an anxious, uncertain and occasionally tumultuous time… It is found in amongst the awkward, arbitrary, and disjointed moments of social sparring, sexual exploration, conformity, vulnerability, and rebelliousness that shape and define coming of age. It is a monotony that is always apparent yet never directly addressed, showing itself only in the quiet, in-between moments, the moments that are not spectacular or funny or frightening, the moments when these teens are entirely alone with themselves.
