Photographer Sean Vegezzi Releases “I Don’t Warna Grow Up” Book

Sean Vegezzi is interested what lies beneath — New York City that is. The 22-year-old photographer and urban spelunker is a Manhattan native who likes to capture images of youth, mostly his friends, as they explore the unseen and desolate parts of the city they call home.

Inspired by the legendary portraiture of Annie Leibovitz and Ryan McGinley’s depictions of young people, Vegezzi shoots his subjects in urban locales like construction sites and abandoned subway tunnels. He finds beauty in the isolation.

Vegezzi’s work is collected in his new book I Don’t Warna Grow Up — its title a nod to Peter Pan-esque mentality of adventure he and his friends have.  Vegezzi and publishing company Fourteen- Nineteen will hold a launch event for the book this Friday Sept. 28 at The Hole Shop Gallery at 312. Come through and cop a copy of the limited first edition. Mass Appeal will be on hand for the event seeing just how deep his work goes. Pause.
