15-years old and armed with a camera, photographer Olivia Bee has already been commissioned to shoot her friends and family for companies such as Nike and Converse. Her style is dreamlike and otherworldly and she's inspired by the documentary-style photographs of Ryan McGinley.

“I’m really bad with words, so I use pictures,” she told Dazed. “Seeing photos of my parents when they were young was pretty inspiring, and it made me have this huge desire to have these really beautiful memories. I make my photographs for me, it’s my diary, truly, and I want these images to document everything that is happening now, because these are memories that I know I don’t want to lose."
