Young Gods


(swipe right)

Restless, to drift and stroll,
searching to find his fill,
of varied space and novel thrill,
for tricky risks and wavering scenes,
lusty joy and raising misery.
– Stefanie Moshammer

Young Gods documents a young male generation in Denmark, delving into themes of adolescence.The series juxtaposes a quest for freedom with emerging responsibilities, interrogating the age of self-discovery. The entire series plays with the concepts of representation and self-presentation. Using material from the boys' social media alongside photographs by Stefanie Moshammer, it blends two perspectives:
their self-representation and the artist's observation. This interplay explores the dynamics between the observer and the observed, offering a nuanced examination of youth and identity.

Does it actually still exist, a pure young human being — an unspoiled mind — that doesn’t care about fitting into a civilized form?
When else can you lose and celebrate yourself, thinking the whole world revolves around you alone? The more grown up you become, the more you are forced to fit into a shape. As if there was a specific reason for you to exist, because ‘wasting’ time is not accepted in a world like ours. There is almost no space for emptiness that leads to some completely unknown conclusion.

Sometimes the future becomes a worry
and we all wish we were younger.
