A visual testament and source of inspiration for the project, Dutch director and photographer Johan van der Keuken's series of portrait photographs We are 17 (1955) documents the experiences of young people, capturing a complex picture of European society in the 1950s.

Now, almost seven decades after the publication of the We are 17 series, the cultural creation and transmission project We are 17 (21st century) establishes links between young people, photographers, cultural mediators and adults from different corners of Europe.
During the two We are 17 workshops coordinated by photographers Lorena Dumitraศ™cu and Melissa Ivana between February and May, we aimed to create the collective portraits of the two generations, free from stereotypes, but also to value each person separately, and to pay attention to his features and way of being.
