Royal Youth

Holding it’s roots in the 19th century debutante ball, the American prom is renowned as one of the most important coming of age traditions. For Flint, Michigan, prom holds a greater weight than tradition. It is an ingrained part of the community. Send off parties are the norm, red carpets are rolled out and luxury vehicles line the main street. Young women are adorned in their best jewelry and young men strut in their finest suits. Family members cheer them on and document every moment on their phones. 

After months of planning, these youth get one night to transform into royalty.
