Rural Kids by Louise Thompson brings an honest truth to documenting childhood. She captures moments of interaction and awareness of the farming culture and practices. Growing up in rural Cumbria, Louise is familiar with the reality of life in the countryside, allowing her to focus on accurately portraying the details of everyday life for young people in a rural community. The photographs show children in their natural environment discovering with curiosity and adventure of the day-to-day responsibilities of a farming community. This series aims to enhance the viewer's awareness of this community and engage them in a visual journey through aspects of the children's lives through documenting their encounters with their animals and birds and showing the importance of family traditions being handed on.
