Still Life of Teenagers - Barbara Marstrand

Stuffed animals and make-up. Piles of laundry and stylish shoes arranged neatly in boxes. Family photos and dream catchers. Clutter and commercials. The latest computer and the nostalgia of an old typewriter. These are elements found in Barbara Marstrand's richly detailed photographs of teenage bedrooms. Barbara Marstrand's photobook offers a keenly observant sociological study of the Danish youth culture of today. What does it look like in the spaces of Danish teens, what do they like to surround themselves with, how do they aestheticise their everyday lives, what preoccupies them? Meanwhile, these details also function as traces of the life lived with and among the objects.
