Today's children appear far more aware of social, political, and cultural issues than I could have ever imagined. The many forms of current media expose today's youth to an infinite abyss of global concerns. This has spawned a generation of voices rich with knowledge and understanding of today's climate. Is the concept of childhood that we knew, slowly getting squashed under the colossal boot of relentless, inescapable media? 

I have approached this question around a presumed lost childhood by creating surreal imagery using photography and digital editing. I have combined adult and childlike features to the subjects to foster uncertainty between reality and fiction, whilst sinking into the bitter palate of the uncanny valley.
