TEEN FAMILIES IN EUROPE 2010-2011
A project that presents an actual image of Europe and makes it possible to meet and to apreciate our European neighbours.
Ten years after his major exhibitions “The Family Album of Planet Earth” and “1000 Families”, the photographer Uwe Ommer is working on a new project with the same familiar fervour.
This time, he is concentrating on Teens and their Parents. What are the teens of today like ? And who exactly are their parents ? Are teens no longer the same or is it the world they live in that has changed ?
Travelling through Europe (and several neighbouring countries), Uwe Ommer meets, questions and photographs around 300 Families and their Teenagers.
The result is a fascinating encounter of two generations, in their environment, illustrated by photos and spontaneous comments. The interviews were carried out separately and target the parent-child relationship.They paint a picture of their way of life, how they see the future and the environmenta economy.
