Sean Vegezzi’s cult favourite ‘I Don’t Warna Grow Up’ is a depiction of youth culture in NYC. Capturing the essence and adventurous spirit of adolescence, Vegezzi’s project is a celebration of those who remain forever curious about the world and environment around them.
The book, published by London publishing duo Fourteen-Nineteen, contains 144 pages of colour monograph printed photos in an 18 x 27 cm format. Accompanying the photography is an essay by Abeline Choen. Since 2000, Vegezzi has been photographing various explorations through the urban landscape of New York City. The book displays abandoned subway tunnels, building sites, alleyways, rooftops and various other locations that display the unique industrial framework of NYC. I Don’t Warna Grow Up is a compulsive account of the recklessness and instinctual spirit of youth.
