Condition: Very Good. Signs of wear to edges of spine and covers.
Almost Grown is a celebration of teenage experience: the years of restless desire and blossoming sexuality; the world of high school, parking lots, and street corners. The book combines Szabo's photographs with poems written by teenagers who were asked to tell a picture’s story as their own. The result is an unusual collaboration between teacher and student, a funny and romantic look at teenagers looking at themselves.
Joseph Szabo is considered to be the quintessential youth culture chronicler of his generation. In 1978, his first book Almost Grown was published to great acclaim and the photographs within it represent a remarkable evocation of the period, providing a timeless and endlessly compelling look into the formative years of American youth.
