A beautifully crafted set of colour and black & white photographs reflecting the natural moments of childrens' lives, touching upon memories of our own childhood. All the subjects in the book are 'Cousins'.
These photographs are taken with feeling and soul, they are natural, capturing the everyday, the quiet times and the moments that are sometimes not recorded. The beauty of the children in this book radiates via their own unique personalities, their own responses to the project and their own preference of being photographed.
I strip back my photographic portraiture to the bare essentials; light, my camera and my subject. This approach requires a trust between me and my sitter...the resulting intimacy is a hallmark of my work. With a BA(Hons) first class Degree in Photographic Media I produce fine art projects, exhibition work, commercial portraits and weddings whilst being strongly devoted to personal analogue work. view my WEDDING work here http://helenaikman.smoothfolio.com view my FINE ART work here http://helenaikman.artworkfolio.com view my COMMERCIAL site here http://www.helenaikman.co.uk
