The Child Experiments with Looking Through a Magic Eye Glass

Digital photo with post-production
2006

On the series: These portraits were more collaborative efforts with my young son, than my simply taking pictures of him. He would prepare a situation and would ask that a picture be taken, which is how the series began. He wanted to see how what he'd dreamed up looked like through the eye of the camera, and enjoyed having it preserved--probably like most children. Then when I was working on a picture in post production I would ask him what he thought as we both conjured a photo befitting his dream.

On this photo: H.o.p. experimented with looking at the world through a magic eye glass that came with a fast food meal, and found it pretty magical.
