From i-D Magazine:
“I wanted to explore the beauty in naivety. That period in our lives when you can’t wait to grow up, but are still incredibly unsure about what the future holds,” explains Jacob John Harmer, the photographer behind arresting new photo series Lost Ones. Only recently beginning to explore analogue photography, London-based Jacob previously focused on filmmaking -- shooting the likes of A$AP Rocky and Adwoa Aboah, and for brands such as Nike and Vivienne Westwood. But looking for a way to forge a closer connection with the strangers he met, last year Jacob embarked on a photographic project that took him back to his hometown of Hastings, to document the local kids hanging out in the evenings. As day turned to dusk and a lambent glow fell across the sky, Jacob would wander out to cliff-faces of Hastings. The result is a document of teenage banality in beautiful, painful detail, against the still, epic backdrop of the Sussex coastline.
