about the project.
For Soundless Pounding of Accelerating Dreams, Slater Bradley worked with photography and local teenagers. He asked each teen to identify the place in New York where they felt most comfortable— sites which most reflected who they were and who they aspired to become. The locations varied from a swimming pool to a church, from a movie theater to Washington Square Park, to a photographer’s studio. Each kid was then photographed in his or her chosen environment—each with a different camera, some in color, some in black and white, in order to convey a particular feeling. To further emphasize individual identities, the final photographs were printed in various sizes and altered by the hand of the artist.
