16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
the fountain of youth trickles with nonchalance

Two young men, best friends, oozing with confidence and nonchalance look down at the viewer with blasé expression and almost confrontational demeanor. On the verge of adulthood, these two guys are a universal symbol for the juxtaposed reality that is the “young man”. This photo communicates the shared bond between them, while commenting on ironic laidback approach on life the young man has during the years of his life that he is most energetic and capable. Amongst all this, however, is a common sense of peace.
