LOST danielle shitrit

This project is about my generation, generation Y. I don’t intend to present an entire generation and the struggles it goes through, but to show a sneak-peek to me and my subjects personal lives and the internal consequences of living in a generation of “lost” people.

The drugs, the melancholy, the rented apartments, the loneliness – are repeated motifs in my project that characterize a period of time and a certain state of mind that is important for me to document.

We are a deserted generation, we’re forgotten and were given up on – I feel it’s my duty to document it and the special people surrounding me every day saving me from myself.

Considering the “not so bright future” my lost generation awaits for, it’s important to find beauty in the small things in life, appreciate the deep friendships created around us and live the present to its fullest.

The camera became another friend in my social circle. I started photographing obsessively and instinctively, without thinking too much. With time I started focusing my work on a few key figures in my life – my immediate environment, my friends, each one of them is a representative of a part of our generation.
