The omnipresence of the image in contemporary society raises important questions and provokes critical debates concerning the relationship between individuals and visual culture. Cultural studies and visual culture scholarship provides valuable insights into the ways in which film, television, video, fashion, photography and other visual fields shape and are shaped by the values, sensibilities and practices that condition everyday life. However, the particular dynamics of teenage visual culture often escape the level of critical scrutiny directed at adult-centred texts. In recognition that teenagers occupy a complex, though frequently marginalised, position in society, this collection of essays draws upon a range of interdisciplinary approaches to examine the ways in which visual culture reflects and shapes teenage sensibilities, educates teens about the world around them and contributes to the process of identity formation
