Throughout her career, photographic artist Amy Touchette has explored connections between humanity, making photographs of people within their social groups and communities. A documentarian and a street photographer, Touchette has utilized the power of photography to create authentic portraits of those who interest her. In 2012, The New York Times published images from New York Young, Touchette’s street portrait series of teenagers in New York City. The newspaper described the work as “a potent mix of street savvy and aching vulnerability…”
New York Young inspired Touchette to make the same style of portraits of teenagers in O’ahu, Hawaii and Tokyo, Japan to discover what teen culture looks like in three disparate island nations.
