SIGNED Joseph Joe Szabo Almost Grown Teenagers High School Youth Cornell Capa
Poetry collected by Alan Ziegler. Harmony Books, New York, 1978. SIGNED by Joseph Szabo on the title page in my presence. Almost Grown is a celebration of teen-age experience: the years of restless desire and blossoming sexuality; the world of high school, parking lots, and street corners; and the uniquely American culture in which all of us have grown up. It is a record in photographs and poetry that combines the talents of an adult photographer and a group of almost-adult poets who were asked to tell a picture's story as their own. The result is an unusual collaboration between teacher and teenager, a funny and romantic look at teenagers looking at themselves. Theirs is a world rarely witnessed by parents. Here is what kids do together - at the beach of the drive-in, during and after school - what they themselves describe as "doing nothing" because it is neither work nor play. In ninety photographs and twenty-five poems written by teenagers in Alan Ziegler's writing workshops, Almost Grown dramatizes and clarifies adolescence, making it familiar, sensual, and charged with the shock of recognition.
