Michael Schulman states in the opening essay to Ethan James Green: Young New York, “They come to New York City every week, more and more of them, in buses and trains and cars, carrying bags, carrying ambitions, carrying the fabulous clothes on their backs. They’re the fashion kids, the art kids, the theater kids, the who-knows-what kids—creative renegades of nineteen or twenty or twenty-five.” He goes on to say “Ethan James Green was one of them. Then he became one of their more stylish chroniclers.”
Ethan James Green is a former model who now shoots for a number of fashion magazines including Vogue Italia, Vogue Paris, W. The book presents his black and white portraits of young people transitioning from adolescence into adulthood, many of whom are in the process of gender transition. The images are all shot using natural-light and his subjects stare straight into Ethan’s lens. Ethan’s images succeed in being both intimate and confrontational at the same time.
