I love photographing children. I prefer working with them from about 6 months to about 6 years. Those are the tender days, when they can do no wrong, when all the world is wonder. Makes a photographer’s job so easy.
Childhood – The 21st Century – Poem by Ernestine Northover
How advanced they are, these children of the future,
Like small adults, within their tiny frames,
They grow up in a fast ‘speed driven’ culture,
Where ‘learning pressures’ change their kind of games,
Where is their childhood, in all this hurly burly,
Where is their pure untainted view of things,
Why do they have to grow so old, so early,
And lose the joy that only childhood brings.
