This is Alexa. Last year we went to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for a summer high school program. I’m 16. We were just hanging out in the park that day and I took a photo of her wearing my sunglasses. My friend had stolen a bunch of Polaroid film for me so I was psyched. He liked stealing and he knew I was running out of money for film.

My sister Sachi took this photo. She’s 18. We’re both photographers. That’s her best friend, Sofia. Sachi drew hearts in highlighter on her tan line. They’re goofy.

The girl flipping her hair reminds me of that Lovin’ Spoonful song that goes “Hot town, summer in the city…” (I’m not sure if that’s embarrassing or not.)

This was in Venice Beach, California, on the Jewish High Holidays. My friend had a big empty house there. I felt bad because we were lying around doing nothing instead of going to temple.

Sachi took this photo of her friend Clara on their last day of high school. I know she doesn’t look that happy to be leaving but she was.
