Seen and Heard
Mary Motley Kalergis

The most common lament heard from parents is that their kids won't talk to them; that they can't open up and don't know how to communicate. Seen and Heard shatters these stereotypes and brings you face-to-face with 51 American teenagers in a series of artful duotone photographs. In riveting, no-holds-barred interviews accompanying their portraits, they express their feelings about family, religion, school, peer pressure, race, sex, and drugs. These portraits and words of young people across the country convey a message of individual respect, and the desire to be understood and accepted for who they are.
