Youth After Grenfell with Juergen Teller and iD Mag


On 14 June 2017, fire devastated the Grenfell Tower in West London. The official death toll has been set at 72. It was later revealed that the tower had been clad in combustible materials, bringing to light evidence of prolonged institutional neglect.

The tragedy has also revealed to the world the power and strength of the Grenfell community, its deep compassion and determination for justice. In the following, young people connected to the Grenfell community document their lives over the past few months. Marches; memorials; moments of escape: each image tells its own story.

The iD magazine pages have been curated by Juergen Teller, who worked closely with the group throughout, offering support and advice. Apple kindly donated 20 iPhone 8+, so that everyone could take pictures with the same lens. The brief was open: it was up to the young creatives to express themselves through image making.
