The comfort in pretending.

Newer Older

I've always been fascinated by photographs where children are the subjects and by those photographers that combine their innocence with darker concepts. This is Brian's cousin. She's only five years old, but she's such a good model and so comfortable in front of the camera.

I created a blog, where I'll be posting and talking more in depth about my life and photography.

    Deeply affected by this photo (in a good sense), being a posthumous born child I have never met my father - now having bought headless mannequins I decided to do a photo similar to this, & having looked through google images for photo's similar I came across this.. I really don't think I can create this concept as well as you have :}

    I keep coming back to this photo, it grips my heart every time. Such a strange feeling but it makes me fall in love with it every time. Thank you for that.

    I absolutely love this photo. Adults can pretend and whisk their children away "protecting them" while they are the ones who are afraid. Children have the courage and innocence to look back.
