Akrav Kids by Oumayma B. Tanfous for DAZED
The series shows a community of artists aged 16-21 who make up the recently launched street cast Akrav Agency. Alongside the photos, they discuss new ways in which young creatives are growing within the city of dreams.
"Being born in a city so wild and knowing where you come from, and how it has an effect on you just makes you want to grind. Being able to be yourself in a city full of people trying to be themselves too is hard, but also beautiful – nobody should be the same. Everybody has to stick out like a sore thumb sometimes. In the city that never sleeps, anything and everything happens here, you just have to be awake and alert.”
