Michael Franzini - a photographer, writer, and Emmy-winning director - recently travelled over 30,000 miles across America to photograph and interview a diverse group of 100 teens in all 50 states. The group matches census data for gender, race and sexuality and encompasses every kind of teenager - jocks and band geeks, stoners and gamers, emo kids and goths, rural and city kids. The book shows teens as they want to be seen.

Emmy- Award winning director and photographer Michael Franzini produced a project called One Hundred Young Americans which revealed the individual personalities of a series of youths across the country. Those youths that are labeled under Gen Y. This beautiful series features a new perspective of the status of youths these days by featuring them individually away from the typical stereotypes under the Gen Y label. The range of teenagers today is comparable to teenagers before, Franzini says. Some of them had parents that pushed really hard, some had parents who weren’t even there.

Jake has 15,000 friends on MySpace and gets followed through the mall by girls who recognize him as an online celebrity. April is the youngest sex worker at the world famous Bunny Ranch, which she saw on the HBO series Cathouse.

Terrific, it's all there, the kids' hopes and dreams, their passions, fears, mistakes.
Michael Francini (and his team) did a terrific job in finding such a diverse group of 100 youths around the country.
The portraits are fabulous. Each one made to fit and doing justice to the person in the picture. All telling different stories. Great light, composure, good ideas and great people, all of them! This is what portrait photography is about.
We all can learn from each and everyone in the book. From who they are, what they want to be and what they have to say. Listen, try to understand and it will make you a better person.

I bought this for my sister after a website suggested it to me, and it seems she likes it. The only thing I did not like about this was there were so many pictures that did not describe the kids in real life situations. I think my sister would have liked it more then, but what are you going to do?

This book was a last minute gift me sister picked up for me for Christmas, and I couldn't be happier with it
It has easily ranked in my top three Christmas gifts this year
The reason I was interested in this book was because I am very into portrait photography and trying to capture a person's personality in a photograph. And don't get me wrong, this book definitely did that. But it was more than that.
For the first time, I finally got to see how teenagers all across the country live.
I have lived all seventeen years of my life in sheltered suburban Long Island, and this book exposed me to people of all walks of life.
Whether it be a 14 year old mother in California or a devout christian in Massachusetts, I was finally offered a glimpse into the world of teenagers like me outside of my little social world.
Suddenly, I found myself wanting to know everything about these people. Reading their stories and then looking into their eyes. By the time I finished I felt like I knew each and every one of them.
It took me an hour to finish this book, and that was the hour I snuck away from my family before Christmas dinner. I just had to finish it.
This book would make an amazing gift to anyone. Budding photographers, aspiring journalists, teenagers, parents of teenagers....
I strongly recommend it.
Simple fellow
My daughter got this book from a friend who is in it. The pictures are amazing. I am blown away!

This book has beautiful photographs, interesting and easy to read profiles of 100 American teenagers. It is a snapshot of what it feels like growing up in America today. Some of them will make you laugh or smirk or shake your head. Some will shock you, frighten you, hit you like a brainfreeze. Others will fill you with optimism or rage.

There are familiar teens-- varsity athletes, skaters, goths, virgins and tramps-- and lots of kids who defy simple labels. An archery hunter bagging a moose, a girl who's a formula one racer, a boy killed in a driveby shooting. You can learn something from each picture, or you can just admire how cool they look.

Adults never want to confront the reality of the emotions and problems, the pain and joy teenagers go through. They would rather create their own fantasies of airbrushed, perfect boys and girls instead of remembering what they were like and how they felt. This book tells the unpolished truth in full color. I can only imagine that youth will devour this. Hopefully, it will show up in school libraries around the country because the stories inside are so necessary (for adults too). Great book, great portraits, great job at snapshotting the elusive American teen in all shapes, sizes and stripes.

One Hundred Young Americans is an eye-opener for me. I consider myself pretty connected with the youth of today but after reading this beautifully published piece, my perspective has broadened immensely. Franzini's lens captures the emotions, aspirations, and dreams of his subjects with vivid and detailed artfulness. The images are provocative and many times playful. Though I learned and got reaquainted with today's young people through Franzini's eyes, I almost feel like I personally knew many of these kids when I was in high school.
This book really disects such an interesting cross sections of young lives and gives great insight to the challenges that they are out there living. Their existence that many of us " adults " may take for granted. The burdens, hopes fears and sheer existence of their lives are tolled in ways not imaginable to those of us who don't live on Myspace or earn a steady paycheck. Well documented, beautifully photographed and a great book to own.
