Youth: so full of hubris, lust for life, the understanding of mortality overwritten by the feeling of invincibility. No matter how much you try and lock youth up, it will always strain against the cage’s wires, desperate to be free, searching for some way to fearlessly experiment with life in the process of finding itself.
So Lock the Kids Up Safe Tonight by Marta Streng is filled with that raw passion and sense of adventure. It doesn’t matter if you get dirty, drenched, if your feet are bare and you’re out late with no way of getting home. Not caring is the beauty of it.
With models Patrycja Baginska, Paulina Zarebska, Cornelius Carol Stachyra and Michal Gwizd, you can view all of Marta Streng’s shoot at the gallery above.
