YOUTH IN REVOLT

Size four models that look like they haven’t had a bad hair day or a zit in their entire life, celebrities airbrushed beyond recognition, one thousand and one ways to get an orgasm, articles encouraging girls as young as thirteen to go out dressed in little more than a hanky, a one thousand five hundred dollar scarf advertised as a wise investment, girls ‘dressed’, posed and photographed for the pleasure of perverted old men and pubescent little boys, 20 question quizzes that will determine the rest of your life, miracle diets and miracle creams. That’s not life that’s a glossy magazine. Life’s is an amazing, beautiful, eye opening journey, a learning process through which we gather the knowledge and experience required to pass from this life into the next. Youth in revolt will evoke thought, feeling and discussion from start to finish, life will never be a glossy magazine but this, is progress. This is YOUTH IN REVOLT.

Have you ever seen a ghost/alien? ALIEN – YES. I saw a UFO outside of my bedroom window in the beginning of January and took some pretty bizarre photos of it.

I have tapes of a lot of it; uh some of the girls have seen the tapes. I even, um... I ate some of their brains, and I tried to cook a little. Tonight I, uh, I just had to kill a LOT of people. And I’m not sure I’m gonna get away with it this time. I guess I’ll uh, I mean, ah, I guess I’m a pretty uh, I mean I guess I’m a pretty sick guy.

YOUTH IN REVOLT

Samantha Dolan is a talented lady from Scotland who started creating after she won a colouring-in competition at the age of seven held by the dinner ladies at the school she attended. At first she tried her hand at painting, inspired by the works of Lucien Freud, Louise Bourgeois, Gustav Klimt and Frida Kahlo, now 24 her work is solely illustration. Caffeine accompanied by obscure scifi music keeps her fish-like attention span from running out before completing one of her unique pieces. Inspired by escapism, mythical and surreal imagery, she likes to imagine up little narratives in her head to accompany her kooky creations. Samantha has an obsession with drawing ladies whose hair towers, knots and consumes them and this has resulted in the deaths of many 0.05mm point pens. For this Scottish sweetie creating is like an extra muscle she has to flex regularly.

YOUTH IN REVOLT

The Real Series: The OCD By: Nicole Daphne.

therealseries.tumblr.com therealseries.blogspot.com 28


YOUTH IN REVOLT

I don’t know when I first became aware that I suffered from OCD, looking back on my final year of high school there was things that should have tipped me off but I guess my mind was elsewhere. I suppose it was beginning uni and starting to go out more that made me realise something wasn’t quite right or ‘normal’. The first thing I noticed was that large crowds scared me and often sent me into a panic, I then began to notice I felt compelled to do certain things a certain way and became irritated and sometimes even unstable when I couldn’t do so. I confided in some close friends about the things I’d been noticing but they told me being stubborn was in my nature and it was probably nothing to worry about. Unfortunately as my OCD got worse it became apparent that this wasn’t the case and that the sooner I found ways of dealing with the disorder the sooner I could return to my ‘normal’ life. Find ways of dealing with the disorder = return to ‘normal’ life, sounds rather simple right? Wrong. When an already stubborn personality is diagnosed with OCD they’re going to have a bit of trouble accepting the idea that they need help. Luckily with the persistence of friends and family I’ve since found ways of dealing with the disorder and now live a healthy and a relatively ‘normal’ life. Although I have made a lot of progress since being diagnosed with OCD life still has it’s challenges. Sometimes I stay home while my friends go out to avoid crowds, I’m always catching my pears giving me glares because I’m constantly fiddling and I know it more than irritates my teachers. I also find myself fiddling at work, I twiddle the glasses and on more than one occasion I’ve heard costumers muttering insults under their breath. I take the longer route to and from uni because.... well frankly I’m not sure why but it’s stupid and ultimately time consuming, I often find myself running late to classes or arriving home to a cold dinner because of it. More than anything though OCD affects my mood, I’m constantly becoming angry at myself and sometimes even hating myself and for what? Something that’s completely out of my control. I’m not looking for sympathy though, suffering from OCD has given me perspective and taught me not to take things for granted. I still go out, I party, I go to uni, I have a girlfriend and I hold down a steady job, apart from my disorder I’m your average teenager with a few not so average tendencies. Plus believe it or not suffering from OCD actually has an upside, I’ve learned to be calm when I’m feeling under pressure and I possess an attention to detail that most people don’t. Shortly after agreeing to take part in this project I turned 20 and in those 20 years I’ve successfully completed my tertiary education and have been accepted into uni, suffering from OCD has never and will never limit the amount of success I believe I’m capable of achieving. I won’t let it. As you can tell despite everything I’m a pretty positive person, but recently something has been plaguing my mind. A few years back I made the long plane trip over to Europe. I don’t use airplane toilets because I don’t like small spaces.... I tried to hold it to Europe. I kid you not. I’m going to Europe this time next year and I have until then to work out my plan of attack. If anyone has any ideas message me on 0432… I may suffer from OCD but I’m not stupid. I know what you’re thinking “The OCD made a funny, good for him.” But my charm and wit is what gets me through my toughest days. It’s a defense mechanism, a way of reflecting the judgment and ridicule of uneducated fuckwits. If I could offer other OCD sufferers any advice it would be not to take the disorder or life in general too seriously, remember we all end up the same in the end, some of us just take a different route to get there. Oh and another thing, fuck ‘normal’. What is considered to be ‘normal’ by today’s society anyway? Being ‘normal’ isn’t real, being ‘normal’ is conforming to a standard or a common type. Trust, that’s what’s real to me. Having trust in yourself and trust in others and being able to return that trust to those who deserve it. Trust is a big thing to me and I’ve given it to undeserving people in the past. Over the last few years I’ve managed to develop and sustain relationships with people I can confidently say I trust beyond any reasonable doubt and at the end of the day making sure these relationships continue to flourish and grow, that’s what’s real to me.

Hatti Rex Interviewed by Olivia Mróz & written by Nicole Daphne.

Hatti Rex is a nineteen year old illustration student from England, she’s Gemini, has a cat called Maisy and is a one time accidental bird murderer. Her favourite artists are Cindy Sherman and Mark Ryden and she loves to blog about death, cats, aliens, monsters, BDSM, weird shit - you know, the usual. She’d preferably like to die in some dramatic way so she makes it onto the news and everyone will talk about how nice she was even if she was horrible to them. Her mediums of choice include black acrylic paint, marker pens and water colour and occasionally she makes videos too. She usually has some crappy film on in the background when she’s creating with a big cup of tea with eight spoonfuls of sugar close by. Nine times out of ten Hatti’s work will be a portrait and based on internet culture or death. Hatti’s creations make our eyes happy and our imaginations dance. hattirex.co.uk deathsy.tumblr.com 40

Adam-Peter Hicks Adam-Peter is a 18 year old fashion photographer and massive babe from London. He considers himself impartial to religion but believes in something higher than the human species. If Adam could start a revolution he’d imprison all of the judgmental people in the world because he believes everyone should be able to act, say and wear what they like free of ridicule. When he’s not watching pigeons die and getting his penis stuck in his boxer draw he’s expressing himself through his photography and styling, dabbling on the occasion in illustration and printing. Adam photographed Roberto Piqueras A/W 2012/13 collection and assisted the amazing Alis Pelleschi both for Vice magazine and will now be joining the Youth in Revolt team as a monthly contributor.

YOUTH IN REVOLT

This month we intervied the talented young seventeen year old photographer from Belgium

Oona van der Loo

Who’s your favorite artist? It must be David Bowie, there’s no other musician that has been stuck in my head for so long. Though, I really tend to be fascinated by music and visual beauty in general. I’ve also been really into the art of Belgian photographers Frieke Janssens and Eva Vermandel. Especially the last one. I value her works a lot for some reason, I think it must be the simplicity, and I mean that in a good way. It comes to me as very pure and real - two very important elements in a photograph. I can’t really think of another person, but there are really a lot, and I always tend to write down all the musicians I like. I think that is because it inspires me the most. What inspires you? Music is one thing and it gives some sort of a red wire throughout my works. I really like to play with lyrics and titles. But also literature, philosophy, the will for freedom and my own emotions are involved in the process. I never really work so direct with all these elements, my inspiration and creativity comes with waves and sometimes there isn’t a wave for a long time. But when I have a certain emotion, all these elements come together. I read poems or books, listen to music that fits me the most on that particular timing and write things down, and when I feel like something good is coming out of it, I’ll try to capture it. I’m also very inspired by the human forms of expressions like theatre and dance. I’m fascinated when it comes to surrealistic pieces of stage art, stuff to think about. So the form of inspirations really depends on a lot of things. But I think the main inspiration comes from my life and interests in general. I feel inspired with what I see, and I only see what fascinates me. What’s your favorite blog you visit? I like visiting my sister’s. But I occasionally drop by some fashion blogs like Strawberry Koi, just because they sound so human and have beautiful photographs. Apart from those two I occasionally visit a friend’s one, but that’s about it. I’m not really into reading blogs, I just like looking at photographs and some short-minded captions, it doesn’t need to be more for me. What mediums do you use? I started to use Flickr first, after a while I made a personal facebook-account and around the same time my personal website was being designed, still not finished though. Just two months ago I also made a Facebook fan page, which I don’t really like using. I don’t like facebook in general actually, but sometimes it does come out handy and easy. But I will shut it down in the future. Furthermore I also have a blog to post the outtakes of series on, some documentaries, or recent things I have been doing. Why do you create? I used to be a writer before I made photographs. I started this novel called “Callistus” and the first two chapters were quite easily written, after that it got in the gutter and it became from bad to worse and I ended up having writer’s block. So I can say I create because my dreamy world fell and I needed something to build around me. It has evolved now to something deeper and more meaningful than it used to be though. And I even started writing again some weeks ago. I create now to give my feelings and certain events a place. I want beauty and meaning amongst the ugliness of everyday life. I do admit I’m really a dreamer and I don’t like to stand with both feet on the ground, but it is sometimes that realization that makes me create. I think that’s what’s keeping me going, without any form of expression I don’t think I would be the same individual. What do you do while you create? I seek for complete silence. And I act most of the time, not acting like pretending, but acting to bring feelings out. It’s like vomiting all the emotions out of your stomach, ‘cause when you are in a specific mood it’s not always so evident to throw it all out. We are always limited in what we show, no matter where we are. When you feel unhappy, you’re unlikely to spread the word confidentially to everyone, we hide in caves and shells where we feel save and have an illusion of happiness, freedom, love and peace. I act real feelings, because I don’t want to end up like this, I want to be able to think for myself and know what I really feel, not to be told what I feel or what I need to feel. How old were you when you started? I think I was about 14-15 years old, never really counted the years, actually. I started with this little digital camera, it has broken now, but I’ve still got it as a souvenir. Had loads of fun with it, but I can say I enjoy making photographs now that bit more with higher technology, though someday, when I have plenty of time and money I would like to shoot analogue. 50

YOUTH IN REVOLT

Plastic ain’t so fantastic. Over the course of the weekend, I strayed from my traditional toilet-time reading pile, which usually consists of Lawrence’s works or Donne poetry, and for reasons that are still unbeknown to me, I found myself instead reading what can only be described as ‘chick lit.’ The toilet seemed to me to indeed be the only appropriate place for this style of writing to be read... After a perusal of the communal family bookshelf, I found myself curled up on the couch reading ‘Sinners,’ by Jackie Collins whom, according to my mother, was quite a scandalous author in the 1980’s. I’ll give you the general gist of the text; Collins explores the ups and downs, the ins and outs of several fictional Hollywood actresses and actors, some of whom are veterans, some new shining stars. Oh, and there’s sex. A lot of sex. Not that I am a prude or a nun or anything,(in fact, who doesn’t love a good sexual innuendo? I did mention before that I am a Lawrence fan. And he’s all about the obscured phallic symbol) but seemingly Collins has attempted to hide an erotic fictional tale beneath the thin guise of popular fiction. Upon further perusal of the bookshelf, it seems that Ms Collins has written quite a number of books, all with other creative and compelling titles such as ‘Hollywood Wives’ and ‘Lucky Star’ which, amazingly, are also about Hollywood actors and actresses. Where oh where does Collins talent end? I read several of these books; and to be brutally honest, they made me feel a bit funny inside. Again, not because of all the sex. In all honestly, what seriously put me off these harmless raunchy tales was Collins’ descriptions of her central female characters. It seems everyone was either ‘Blonde, buxom and beautiful’, or ‘an exotic beauty with a wide sensual mouth’ or ‘a fiery red head with a body to die for’ ect. And there’s nothing wrong with this. In fact, it was to be expected, this being a book based in Hollywood in the 1980’s. But then I picked up the next book, and the same women appeared again. And the same thing with the next text. Here I stopped reading in a fit of anger. I mean, I know that the breadth of Collin’s writings is apparently quiet limited, however does she really believe that al women fit into these categories? Blonde, Brunette, buxom and beautiful? I’ll elaborate further.

54


YOUTH IN REVOLT

At the end of the text ‘Sinners’, the protagonist Sunday Simmons, a poor girl from the slums of Rio who climbed her way into the hearts of all Americans and the beds of several veteran actors, rode off happily into the sunset and into ecstasy with her new handsome lover Charlie Brick, whilst the overweight and underworked Maria with red hair eats poisoned chocolates and dies. What made my stomach churn into a maelstrom of disgust was, in this authors (limited) imagination is that all the slim, beautiful women with the large breasts all live happily ever after with their handsome partners, whilst the fat, ugly and unsightly succumb to death by chocolate. Is this purely a twisted reality of Ms Collins being brought to life through her writings, or does this accurately reflect our reality? We are all aware of current issues surrounding adolescent teenage girls suffering from diseases such as bulimia and anorexia, and the apparent heavy influence of todays media on these people. Everywhere we look, there are frail, waif looking women on television and in our magazines. That Miranda Kerr chick, for example. Everyone I know goes on about how attractive she is and how ‘hot’ her body is, but I was looking in a magazine and she is reminiscent of a Japanese prisoner of war. I mean, I’m fairly certain that one’s knees should not be thicker than your thighs. If reality was actually like a Jackie Collins book, I would probably be lying dead by now in a pile of un-eaten poisoned chocolates. I don’t have big breasts. I am not blonde, nor do I have a ‘wide, sensual mouth’, whatever that is. My legs do not go on forever. I don’t sleep around just to climb to the top of the ladder. I don’t wear false lashes. And I don’t find sexist, chauvinistic men attractive. At all. If this was ‘Sinners’, I would be Maria and Miranda Kerr would be Sunday. I would be fat and dead and she would be glamourous and alive. There’s quite a difference. In all honestly though, I think I’d rather be a Maria than a Miranda. Because there are lot of unfaithful husbands and wives in those books of Collin’s. There are drugs, and murder, and plastic surgery gone wrong. There are wife swappers and rapes, dreams smashed and broken by oily 50-year-old men who date 19-year-old girls. And whilst you have to be beautiful to be successful, just what is the cost of your success? A cheating husband, strangers hands groping you in the cinema, unhappiness? For me, I’d be much happier lining up in Safeway with my jeans and old woolen jumper and my hair up in a scrunchy and just be myself as opposed to being all dolled up in shorts (even though it’s winter), a skimpy t-shirt and lethal lashings of mascara. Hey, we all know which one is going to get hit on by that sleazy 20-year-old with the awful piercings. And that’s fine with me. I’ll just grab my milk and bread whilst you try to wriggle your way out of that one sticky situation. -Plastic ain’t so fantastic. By Madeleine Stuchbery
