This project is the result of a combined effort by my fellow researcher and photographer, Kimberly Ivancovich, and I. Together we set out to document the experiences of pregnant and parenting teens of Euro-American and Latino backgrounds. Through intensive discussion-based interviews and vivid photographs, stories of struggles and triumphs emerged. Additional research studying the history and social change involved in teen pregnancy rounded out this study of those often considered to be on the fringes of society.
