Photography: Aaron Wojack’s photographs taken inside a Manhattan high school

Do you look back on your high school days with a shudder or a grin? Everyone had to be pushed through that smelly, pubescent tube at some stage or another, and although our experiences were different in their small details, they were all relatively similar. Aaron Wojack dared to revisit high school by way of spending six months at a Lower Manhattan public school and documenting the students studying there. The fact that this particular school was used as a temporary morgue during 9/11 laces these photos of blossoming adults with a vibe I can’t quite my finger on. Maybe it’s because they’re the faces of the next generation in New York, maybe it’s because Aaron states that they all commute from all over the city every day to learn there. Maybe it’s just because the images are just so, so good. Check out the rest of Aaron’s equally fascinating photos over on his site.
