Episode 2 / “She’s a Natural” featuring Justine and Allison Moore (@wunderali on Instagram and EyeEm)
“My nearly-two year old daughter, Justine, has been going through a ‘dressing up’ phase since before she could walk. And lately, she’s been especially interested in wearing my sunglasses, which she promptly loses around the house. So I bought her a cheap pair of child’s sunnies. She couldn’t have been happier, and wouldn’t talk them off for the rest of our shopping trip….running around the store, and posing with the mannequins. I was amazed at the instant attitude (even though she was running into walls a bit.)
Where do little kids get this stuff? Its adorable, but it also makes me want to protect her from growing up too fast. I want to protect her from society’s pressures on feminine beauty and worth. I want her to always feel beautiful because she IS and not because she’s TRIED to be. It will be a journey for us both.
I took these photos with the native iPhone camera, and put it through Camera+, using the flash and black and white filters.
I loved it in bright colour too, but seeing it in b&w instantly reminded me of one of my favourite Cindy Sherman pictures, Untitled Film Still #7 (see picture on the left) “
