This 16 Year Old's Photo Series Will Rock Your Style File

I have always been obsessed with the idea of growing up in a different decade. Would I still look like me? Would I still be like me? How would I dress?!


So it's no surprise that I am obsessed with Ohio State University student Annalisa Hartlaub's photo project “Counter//Culture." Hartlaub, 16, created a photo series in which she interprets styles from previous decades. Using herself as a model, Hartlaub showcases fashion from previous decades ; her trip down memory lane goes all the way back to the 1920s and lands on the modern day.


What's particularly neat about each set of images is the way Hartlaub juxtaposes the mainstream (2000's "prep", for instance) with the avant-garde (the "hipster"). It's a super neat way to compare lasting trends in both the dominant and counter cultures. 


It’s also just ah-mazing what talented young women are capable of! Awesome work, Annalisa!
