Innocent Portraits

What does these images mean to you? Are these innocent children portraying their image of our society? Seen here is part of a series of children's portrait, "The Birthday Party" from Vee Speers, who was inspired by an imaginary birthday party and the way children express their creativity. Her concept began with her three daughters playing dress up at home which lead to Vee's curiosity in capturing the childhood's imagination.

Vee Speers is from Australia living in Paris.  Her art has been exhibited and published globally. She is currently inaugurating the Fotografiska Museum in Stockholm on May 20 with Annie Liebovitz and Joel Peter Witkins.  Check out the website to view additional photographs of series.
