Gen Z, they really are something special. They see the world differently and their keen observations have shattered their predecessor’s preconceived reality. What previous generations have tried to hide, Gen Z will openly discuss at length, posting and sharing without shame, across a plethora of social media platforms. What another generation had to silently suffer with brooding cynicism, Gen Z openly defiant protests, shattering situational silence with a collective earth shaking choir. While relentless brow beating, bullying and profit pillaging, marginalized the millennials, Gen Z withstood a constant barrage of school shooting, after school shooting, planet polluting, planned obsolescence, poisonous products and polarizing political platforms. Attempts to placate them with offerings of empty prayers and broken promises, failed to create fanfare. They don’t need cash, they’ve created their own coin and we’re completely undeterred by a global pandemic they labeled a “Boomer Remover”. Gen Z has entered the chat, and they’re not here to participate in structured establishments, they’re here to burn them down to the ground. They are the Fez’s and Ash’s of realities’s Euphoria. Every hit that landed, only serves to further incite their rage, spread virally, hashtagged and posted in real time as they wipe the blood off their face.
Subject Matter - Portrait profile of a branched peach blossom with an unfurled Bud and leaf face, wears a yellow rain jacket, their head tilted back, rests against the wooden planked park bench they’re seated on. Their illuminated blossom glows against a dark background of abstract city buildings, raindrops and city lights are blurred, reduced to large transparent orbs of yellow and blue light.
