Life Framer Gives Award to Photo Series about Birthday Parties in Bogeta

Photographer Delphine Blast documented the celebration of girl’s growing up in Latin America.

Life Framer, a monthly competition, named a winner of the “Youthhood” theme. French photographer Delphine Blast won with an image from the Quinceañera series featuring young Latin American girls celebrating their 15th birthday – a transition period from “youthhood” to adult life. Parents of the girls sometimes collect money for years to buy an evening dress and organize a celebration. To document the importance of the event, Blast went to the poorest parts of Bogota and captured the birthday girls.
