Wonderland


I came across this on Grace Lin's illustration web site. She had a link to Yeondoo Jung a Korean photographer. The images were inspired by children's drawings that have been interpreted into photographs. The wonderful thing about children's drawings are their naivety. Baseline is flush to the edge of the paper, x-ray vision, and their sense of space. I think they are absolutely delightful. Check out Yeondoo Jung site.

If you want to learn more about the process of Creative and Mental Growth of children and their art check out the writings of Viktor Lowenfeld. He's well known in the art education circles for researching the stages of creative development. No matter the industrialized culture you come from supposedly we all follow these basic stages from scribble to pseudorealistic stage.
