Practice, 2016

 

One of my university teachers says that when a photographer becomes a parent, the developing tank naturally becomes loaded with child portraits.

 

But beyond the first parental gazes and wonderment, what does it mean to be a photographer's child after all? How does the child affect the photographic act? Does the child act only like a model or is (s)he a fellow artist, a co-author of these photographs?

 

What is childhood? If we consider playing as an act of discovery and learning, is art in general some kind of an act of playing, too?
