Adolescence is a modern art photograph done by Julia Fullerton-Batten. I really liked this picture because at first I didn't even realize it wasn't a painting. The lighting and coloring of the background seem painted not photographed. The young girl standing in the picture is a giant compared to her surroundings. She seems to be totally unfazed by everything going on around her, her posture doesn't look like she is confused or even concerned by being a giant. I thought the stores were weird choices because at firs it lo ks like this could be part of NYC but then the rest of the picture looks like a simple town with several cars and people. These roads certainly don't look like the city roads and the other side of the street where the girl is doesn't look like there are any buildings.
