When I grow up
Children always have an answer to the question "what will you be when you grow up?" There is a beauty in children's ability to be so sure of themselves. They let their imaginations drive them rather than fear. They see no reason why they can't succeed. When I grow up is a child portrait series featuring a variety of 5-10 year olds from Dublin. Each image presents a child appearing to work in their coveted future profession. The project aims to reflect the photographer's portraiture abilities while also conveying a positive message. Despite the current economic and employment crisis, this work strives to provide an optimistic look into what hopefully lies ahead for future generations here in Ireland.
