PDN Photo of the Day

Kids in Love

Twenty year old Olivia Bee is a self-taught photographer and director based in Brooklyn, New York. She’s shot assignments for The New York Times and VICE as well as campaigns for Hermès, in which she cast herself as one of the models. She was fifteen years old when she shot her first advertising campaign—for Converse. Her work features her friends, doing what teenagers and young adults do, but in a well-composed, beautiful way. Bee’s first solo exhibit, “Kids in Love,” is currently on display at agnès b on Howard Street in New York City through July 26, 2014. Curated by Bee and her friend/roommate Allyssa Yohana, “they’re all personal diary photos from age 15-20,” Bee told PDN via email. Bee met with a representative from agnès b back in February and, Bee says, they “hit it off right away and decided we absolutely wanted to do an exhibition.”
