CHILDREN - our legacy
"Children... are our legacy. Our responsibility. They are our destiny and we are theirs. The extent to which we fail as parents, we fail as God's children". Our children are the next generation and we are passing on a legacy to them.
The power of a photographer over his or her subject is immense. Images of children in photos can bring to the forefront issues of vulnerability and trust resulting in feelings of unease and discomfort. The photographers we present in this exhibition convey messages, or artistic concepts, with children as their photographic subjects, and by doing so raise questions about the body, society and culture, as well as issues of realism and representation.
