Portraits Of Adults Posing With Their Awkward School Photos
By John Yong, 23 Jul 2013
Utah-based designer Merilee Allred has created a blog, in which adults posed with their most awkward school photos.
Called the ‘Awkward Years Project’, Allred created this blog to not only highlight “our awkward years” but also to show the “aftermath” of her subjects.
“We’ve all had those awkward years in one form or another,” she wrote. “Whether it was braces, big glasses, zits, awfully-styled hair, or victims of terrible fashion, we can all think back to at least one photo that is especially incriminating.”
“I want people to be proud of who they’ve become. I want youth, especially those who are currently going through a rough time, to know that they are great people in the making. I want to show them that their lives are only just beginning, to see their potential, and to not let bullies get to them.”
“It’s the differences that set us apart from everyone else and we should celebrate that. Great and many things are in store for all of us.”
