Twilight Existence

I am Susannah Benjamin and I live my life in photos. I picked up a camera when I was about 12 years old. Now, at 17, it is the center of my universe. Every time I see a strange face, it sets off my imagination. My world is one populated by gangly adolescents who are living out a twilight existence in that no-man's-land between childhood and adulthood. My 3 close friends serve as my muses and constant sources of inspiration. I do not believe in beauty for the sake of beauty—my photos always have a message or a narrative, because above all I am a storyteller.

Photography by Susannah Benjamin.

Shot on location at Greenwich Academy in Connecticut.

Styling by Michel Onofrio; hair by Rebecca Plymate of See Management; makeup by Yuko Mizuno of Rona Represents. Fashion editor: Angela Velasquez.
