10 of the best photos from Dazed August 2023

New York City teens, St Tropez thirst traps from the 70s, and a tribute to African elegance and youth culture by Sanlé Sory and Kyle Weeks

As August draws to a close, we take a look back at some of the most striking photography published on Dazed over the last month…

Among much else, Sly Morikawa’s Everything reminds me of you is a nostalgia-soaked exploration of ‘love, melancholy, ecstasy, loneliness, anxiety, boredom, and calm’ shot on film in her mother’s Japanese hometown. Sanlé Sory and Kyle Weeks come together to celebrate African elegance and youth culture, and Jeremy Jude Lee’s cinematic shots immortalise Vancouver’s ‘pretty boys’, while Sara Messinger, Angelo Capacyachi and Liza Kanaeva-Hunsicker all offer a glimpse into the youth culture of New York City. Capacyachi uses his practice to make a visual record of his utopian New York fantasy, Messenger’s sympathetic portraits of outsider teenagers in Manhattan honour and perpetuate the city’s dissident past, and Kanaeva-Hunsicker’s monograph NYC Girls draws from her archive to brings together what she describes as an “ode to non-conformist femininity”. Visit the gallery below for a closer look.
