“This photo was taken in Nelsonville, Ohio during the winter of 2010. After driving around with a group of teenagers looking for a fight, Sean Stump was leaning out the window of a friend’s car to see if his opponent was going to show up.
"… When I got home and looked at this photo, I recognized Sean’s expression and body language as a combination of so many different emotions that I’d also felt at his age; I was struck by the universality of youth, despite such profound differences in the areas and circumstances in which we grew up.”
