Wild Youth by Jeff Luker

One of our recent favorite photographers is Jeff Luker, who developed an amazing style, taking pictures mostly of his friends and their adventures. He documents a wild, untamed lifestyle that is celebrating youth culture.

Jeff grew up in Massachusetts, today he lives in Portland, Oregon. His photographic approach was strongly influenced by Roland Barthes’ book Camera Lucida, that taught him to focus on the wounding, personal detail of a photo. For him a picture should have both, cultural significance and something deeply personal. For more of his amazing imagery, check his Tumblr and his Flickr.
