    Marico - No, junior high was the WORST! I’m glad someone enjoyed it…personally, I couldn’t wait to leave.

    By the way, Mr. Home School, what are YOUR junior high memories? 😉

    FritzPhoto - Hey, I wasn’t home schooled, but I did go to Christian schools most of my education. I did go to public school in the 9th grade (the last year it was a Junior High). It was mostly a good experience.

    When I worked on the Welcome to Wonderland project, photographing adolescents for several years, everybody I told about the project had the same reaction: I hated middle school! I guess my reaction to that age wasn’t quite so violent, although it wasn’t easy. (Ask me about being suspended for 2 days sometime….)

    I really do enjoy photographing kids at that age, though. They’re a blast to watch: so dynamic, crazy, surprising, full of potential. They surtprise me all the time with their thoughts, abilities, creativity. They’re still trying to figure out who they are, and it’s a fun, touching process to watch.

    Jessica - Uh, yeah, no. Junior high was my own personal two year nightmare. But your photographs of Jr. High kids don’t make me think of that at all – they make me think of them the way you describe them in your comment there.

    FritzPhoto - I’ll have to work on taking some more horrific photos of junior high, I guess. What specifically do you remember that was terrible?

    Marico - I remember people I had been friends with since before I could walk becoming totally different people, seemingly over-night…You’re right, everyone is trying to figure out who they are, and though it may be intriguing from the outside, it was a painful, confusing process at the time.
