“What makes you different from your friends?”
That question, posed in January to members of Generation Z — people born from the mid-1990s to the early 2000s — by editors at The New York Times, drew an immediate response.
In a call-out on nytimes.com, readers were asked to identify themselves however they wished and invited to submit a self-portrait.
Within 48 hours, there were over 2,500 submissions from people in all 50 states.
“I’m the only person I know at my college that pays their own rent,” Jess from New York City, who described herself as a Korean/Caucasian female, wrote.
“I like to read,” Phoenix, from Minneapolis, who described himself as an American man with a white mother and Vietnamese father, wrote.
“I have red hair and I would like to be called not texted thank you very much,” Lizzie, a white woman from Boston, responded.
Nearly 1,000 similar responses appear online in the recent article, “Gen Z: In Their Own Words,” and hundreds were featured in a special print section in Sunday’s paper.
Generation Z, which includes the younger siblings of millennials, is the most ethnically diverse generation in United States history, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of Census Bureau data.
The editors on the project, Lauretta Charlton, lead editor of Race/Related, a newsletter covering race issues, and Lindsey Underwood, editor of The Edit, a newsletter focusing on youth culture, wanted to reflect the myriad identities of Generation Z. But they also wanted to give them room to define themselves.
“We all don’t fit in the narrow boxes,” Ms. Underwood said.
“The way, I, a 30-year-old black woman, would talk about who I am is different than how my mother, a 62-year-old, would talk about who she is,” Ms. Underwood added. “And I know that a 20-year-old, someone in Gen Z, would talk about it a little bit differently, too.”
The Times published nearly 1,000 images with this article, more than have ever accompanied any one project. For the digital version, Antonio de Luca and Adriana Ramić, designers on the project, created an interactive slide show.
“I think when the public sees a reflection of themselves, a lot more people will spend time with it,” Mr. de Luca said. “It’s not our editorial voice; this is just them.”
For the print component, Andrew Sondern, an art director on the project, wanted to showcase as many people as possible without overwhelming readers. He used a folded pullout section and created a collage of self-portraits alongside the responses.
It was no coincidence that the team responsible for the project consisted mostly of millennials — the generation born from 1981 to 1996, which has been subjected to numerous sweeping articles poking and prodding at who they are, with often absurd claims, including the contention that they couldn’t afford homes because of, among other things, their spending on avocado toast.
“You have to start with recognizing that monolithic definitions don’t serve anybody well,” Ms. Charlton said. “We can’t just say the black community, we can’t just say Generation Z feels this way. We kind of have to get our hands in there and let them speak.”
The team wanted to include as many different voices as possible. The Times reached out to Native American communities; diversity offices at colleges throughout the country, with specific efforts made to contact historically black colleges and universities; Muslim communities; and many other organizations.
Then came the work of parsing them down. The editors worked together to weed out spam and violent imagery as well as verify that the submissions were from real people who still wanted to be featured in the final project.
In response to the prompt, Elias Tzoc-Pacheco of Hamilton, Ohio, wrote, “I speak several languages, hold conservative and progressive views, and always seek to lead my community not just my school.”
He described himself as a Guatemalan bisexual, and said participating in the project and sharing his identity on a large platform felt “impactful.”
“It gave credibility to my experience and the others,” he said.
