These photographs are not about the t-shirt per se. The messages are combinations of pictures and words that reveal much about the identity of the wearer. They tell who these people are and who they aren't, who they want to be and what they want us to know about them. They advertise their hopes, ideals, political views, and personal mantras.
Begun in 2009, TEE has taken Susan Barnett to cities and tourist spots throughout the United States and Europe to record the ever-changing messages.
