Shany by Rineke Dijkstra

This photo was taken by Rineke Dijkstra. This picture caught my attention because it had an interesting background to it. This girl named Shany had just been enlisted into the military service and had been there for 18 months. The picture taken right before this one had a very different look to her expression and appearance. She was a young tomboy with a big smile on her face. This picture portrays a different side to Shany. This shows a girl that has matured and transformed herself over the military induction process, wearing a form fitted black t- shirt and almost giving the appearance of a mug shot. This shows Shanys transofrmation from "innocence to experience". So, moreover, this picture portrays the changes young people go through as they transform from young civilian teens into young adult military fighters.
