Atlas Of Youth

A portrait photography project conceived around hundreds of scouts from 83 different countries. They all lined up in front of the camera.

These photographs are about the scouts’ movement and its 40 million members worldwide. But they also address the issue of diversity within humankind, having the scouts as a mirror of that. Every four years since 1920 scouts coming from all corners of the world join together in a Jamboree, a huge camp where they share brotherhood.

The last jamboree brought to Japan over 33.000 scouts from 155 different countries. During that event an improvised portrait stage was set. Scouts in uniform start facing the camera. One by one, country by country.
