Ritenour High School students have spent weeks learning about composition, lighting and other photography basics, and now they channel their angst, passion, determination and creativity to present Autobiography of a Teen.

The free exhibition will line the walls of the Rock Road branch of the St. Louis County Public Library (10267 St. Charles Rock Road, St. Ann; 314-994-3300 or May 29 through June 30.
