The imagination of a child fascinates me. They have this ability to transform their everyday surroundings into magical worlds through play. For this series of work, I have continuously photographed the daily lives of my two nieces and nephew whilst they play out after school. At first glance, it would seem as though they live on an ordinary street, but do they. Situated in the middle of a highly industrial landscape, these children go down to the woods to play. They dress up as fairies, they explore unknown territories and they imagine far away lands until it's time to go back home. Childhood innocence and never wanting to grow up are all key themes within this series of photographs.
