To Die Young and Famous

By Toby Lichtenwalter | @tobylichtenwalter

"It’s easy to feel that celebrities owe you something, that they should constantly be producing new content. That pressure can turn fatal in a lot of these cases. Because of this culture, many of the world's greatest talents are robbed of their later lives. I wanted to examine how all of us would react if thrust into a position of power. In these pictures, I hope to not only pay tribute to these young talents but also raise awareness about the reliance on celebrities we’ve built."
