Edition: Paperback

Review: Focusing on the lives of Californian teenagers, Bob Pletka’s book has the feel of a social experiment. During one month, 2,000 high school students were asked to document their everyday lives using digital cameras. The resulting book contains some 350 images. There are some fantastic shots, but too often pictures are grainy and blurred. An interesting and different book, well worth a read, if only for the students’ comments.
