Usually working in series, Jona Frank's portraits and short documentaries explore youth culture, especially social cliques and subcultures. Her stark, intimate images make plain the self-consciousness of adolescence and the complexity of socialization and identity formation.
Jona Frank (b. 1966, Camden, NJ) has exhibited her films and photographs internationally and her work is in several prominent collections including Getty Museum, SF MoMA, and Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Frank has published three books: The Modern Kids, High School, and RIGHT: Portraits of the Evangelical Ivy League.
