It is said that with age comes wisdom, but what will also come are fear, responsibility and stress. I see in many of my peers how easy it is to forget to have fun and relax as they face life on a quotidian basis. Age aside, I wonder at what point a person can be considered an adult. I question what it is that constitutes an adult. These self-portraits brought on a more conceptual element once I realized that these attitudes and demeanor become lost with age.
