As people mature into adults they look back on their childhood like it was one of their past lives. Back when we were full of noise and demands, we used our imagination probably to its fullest potential.
So at age 5 you could’ve been a ballerina with genocidal tendencies or a librarian with scheming motives, your choice. The only thing we can assemble from our imagination as adults is whether the car parked outside the house is stealing my bandwidth.
In the morning we lethargically groom ourselves, watch the news and eat the same fucking things everyday for breakfast. As adults we put our imagination aside and focus on jobs, parking fines, designer handbags or impotence.
Anyway, my artwork is a tribute to the imagination of youth.
Many thanks to Katrina Rogers, Rebecca Hearl, Danni Sommers, and everyone else who has participated with the photos.
