Between 1992 and 1996, Dijkstra produced a series of full-length  portraits of teenagers on various beaches in Poland, Croatia, the  Ukraine, Belgium, England, and America, describing the liminal state of  adolescence with startling eloquence. Posing her young subjects before a  luminous background of sand, sea, and sky, she imbues the portraits  with an elemental, almost mythic quality that seems to transcend the  carefully observed particulars of national identity and class.
