Product Description

Fourteen-Nineteen presents the culmination of a years’ worth of transatlantic dialogue for the first book of photographs by artist Sean Vegezzi (1990).

Starting in 2000 Vegezzi began documenting his explorations in New York City. Vegezzi and his companions traversed unused but guarded spaces of the city. Wandering through abandoned subway tunnels, constructions sites, alleyways, rooftops and other spaces of abject industrial insignificance, Vegezzi struck out for the liminal and in between spaces of his environment.

Vegezzi's photographs both document this experience and immortalise the adventurous spirit of adolescence. I Don’t Warna Grow Up could be a mantra for his subjects who are mostly wandering boys on a search for the sake of searching. There is a restlessness to Vegezzi’s images, a seemingly insatiable desire to rearrange the city before them, contrasted to the unfulfilled spaces they find. New York City is a vast network of boundaries both physical and socio-economic, but the magic of youth is found in the lack of reverence for those boundaries.
