deborah parkin

Deborah Parkin's photographs of her kids seems to eerily echo what goes on in the minds of children. she captures the conundrum that is naivety with a hint of knowingness that adults tend to forget or push to the back of their head. it takes me aback at how surreal it all seems, yet it's a little reminder that we should not take children for granted. it's a reminder of how we felt as kids and how we really were wise beyond our years at such a young age. perhaps subconsciously or in a different manner than traditional wisdom, but we were most certainly all wise once.


  1. The texture of these photos is so interesting and hard to describe. She certainly shows the dignity of childhood. I work with children and really like what these photos portray.

  2. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. These images spark something special in my heart, she's such an evocative photographer.

    Your blog is so fantastic, and you have such a way with words, it simply inspires me to create and write better each time I read from you. Thank you for sharing how wonderful you are with the rest of the world, you really are an inspiration, Lulu.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
