Photos of Paris and London’s reckless and boisterous boys

“I like to shoot people who are more reckless, careless, boisterous, edgy or extreme than I am… this keeps me on my toes,” muses 23-year-old New York-based photographer Grace Ahlbom when I ask her about her canon of worldwide muses. From Jack Kilmer to Lukas Ionesco and Julian Klincewicz, all have gazed down her lens, as well as become her friend. When pressed further, she tells me her subject choices often revolve around her seeing something of herself in them, or even bearing a similar experience to her had she not been born a girl. “When I hang out and document these boys, I feel like I’m looking back at what could’ve been,” she explains. “I feel like I’m living vicariously through their adolescence in a way that shows me what could have been mine if I grew up as a boy.” via Dazed
