Fact: "the teen pregnancy rate among Latinas is nearly twice the national average."
This exhibit of celebrity photographer Erin O'Brien's personal work documents the lives of 4 pregnant teenage Latinas, all first-generation Mexicans. The photographs offer an intimate view into a new phenomenon in teenage pregnancy within the United States, due in part to recent waves of immigration.
“Mamás Adolescentes: NYC 2006-2007,” is on view from August 16 - 24th at Danny Simmons' Corridor Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
