Emo kid at Durham Station
Whilst waiting for the train to Newcastle, my friends and I were amused and interested by the huge crowd of emo/grungy indie teenagers waiting around looking as miserable and individual as possible. So it was decided that I would go and ask to photograph this one, in return for a drink later on from my friend Clare (she later bought me a bellini, so it was worth it). I managed to get him to let me take his photo by telling him I was doing an art project for my degree on 'fashion and rebellion since 1969', and that his look illustrated perfectly the point I was making about the rebellion of today's youth. Well, it amused me and I was pretty pleased with this photo, if only because you can barely see even one of his eyes!
