Seen and Heard by Mary Motley Kalergis

A collection of black-and-white photographs accompanied by interviews from 50 American teenagers, who talk about what their lives are like.

They include a farmer's son and a recent immigrant from Mexico, kids from small towns and the daughter of famous parents. There are poets, baton twirlers, football stars, and skateboarders. Given the opportunity, even the most rebellious of the book's subjects admits he lies awake worrying at night, because he is "getting a little bit scared" about the future. "I want to be as fearlessly honest as I can while I'm alive," another of the interviewees declares.

The book shows how photography can be used as a tool for opening communication between adults and young people.
