Is it just us or is talent skewing younger and younger these days? Flickr has unearthed 20 photographers — all under the ripe old age of 20 — who are poised to give the industry's best a run for their money. You know, once they've moved on from less important things like drivers ed and prom.
The 20under20 honorees were selected from within the website's international community by a panel of noted Flickr photographers who were looking for creativity, technical talent, and overall strength of portfolio. As part of the initiative, the Bay Area-based company will showcase the work of these inspiring young talents with an exhibition at New York City's Milk Studios curated by Vogue photo director Ivan Shaw.
