What is it like to be sixteen years old now?

A new cross-site multi media exhibition. Exhibitions launched in Manchester, Salford and at FORMAT International Photography Festival earlier this year. The project will now tour nationally until April 2020.


Photographer Craig Easton conceived this ambitious project following his engagement with sixteen-year olds at the time of the Scottish Referendum. It was the first, and as yet only, time that these young people were given the vote in the UK. Building on the success of that work he invited 16 of the UK’s foremost documentary portrait photographers to collaborate with young people across the country to make a visual vox pop on what it means to be sixteen now.
