Savannah Telfair Museums Jepson Center Photography exhibit 2020

Youthful Adventures: Growing Up in Photography @ Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center, Savannah

The Youthful Adventures: Growing Up in Photography exhibit currently on display at Telfair Museums’ Jepson Center in Savannah seeks to celebrate and complicate views of childhood as a universal stage in life, but one that varies broadly in experience.

The images show a range in age from the emotional minefield and playful discovery of early childhood to the often probing and sometimes awkward search for identity of young adulthood. The exhibition speaks to the diversity of experiences of growing up as children seek to formulate their identities in the multiplicity of societal influences.
