Overview

Attempting to address the photography of children in the late 1990s is a difficult and potentially dangerous exercise. I Spy takes up the challenge by means of a unique combination of new color and black and white photographs and newly commissioned writing. It addresses two related issues in the contemporary photography of children: how children photograph themselves and how they are portrayed by modern women photographers.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents color and b&w photos and original writing from contemporary women photographers and writers on the theme of children and childhood, weaving together photographs made by children, potent images of children, poetry, personal history, and contemporary analysis. Words and images describe imagined, emotive, and actual states of childhood, while refusing to confirm or conform to the romanticism of the constructed and inherited ideal of childhood.
