In her project “Counter // Culture,” 16-year-old photographer Annalisa Hartlaub captures all the mainstream and countercultural movements that have defined the last 10 decades.  Through a series of 10 pictures, she documents how she believes she would have looked had she conformed to aesthetic norms vs been a bit more rebellious in the style of the time. Of course the photo shoot projects on women look in general from the different years and so she manages to present series of portraits that bring life to a century of women, contextualizing how the friction of mainstream and counterculture defined progression. Have a look:
