Every photographer and artist focuses upon a style and uses it in all their work. In this image, the conceptual photography genre has been used. Basically, conceptual photography focuses upon an idea and the artist uses this idea in his work to explain the viewer through the photo, what he really wants to say. The photograph gives a clear idea of what the artist is trying to show and can help a lot in changing the thinking of people.
In this picture, the artist has focused upon darkness and has hidden the faces of the youth. This shows that the youth are secretive and do not want their identity to be known. It also shows a concept that the youth are different from everyone else and would continue to be different and that they are comfortable in their own world (Mirzoeff, 2002).
The faces of the male models in this image are masked and this shows a concept of secrecy and mystery which the youth are interested in. When the face of a person is hidden; it conceals him and also provides him with a platform to reveal his secrets to the world (Rall, 2014). So the photographer is giving the message that teenagers are wearing hoodies in order to be disguised.
