Diptych Friday: unconventional youth

Mo holds his favorite book “Go Ask Alice”, a book about youth and addiction. “I try to read an hour a day cause it gets you out of your head,” said Mo. He was once a drug addict himself, the oldest and black sheep of his family, Mo got into drugs at a young age and was kicked out of his home at 15. He is now living in a tent community on the outskirts of Ann Arbor, MI.

Here are a couple films stills and images from that evening of feature hunting:
