During a one-year stay in London Julia Peirone photographed teenage girls that she met in the streets. She was fascinated by the strength but also by the vulnerability seen in the girls' faces.

The individual portraits are combined into a large montage: a massive wall of the girls who, without posing with fixed eyes and closed mouths look straight into the camera.

Julia Peirone was born in 1973 in Argentina, She has studied at the School of Photography at Göteborg University. Her work has been exhibited on several occasions in Sweden but also in Europe and the United States.

The exhibition opens on 27 November at Kulturhuset and is on until 8 February 2009.
