“Smoking Kids” photo series shows how adults impact children


Shocked and inspired by a video of a chain-smoking two-year-old in Indonesia, photographer Frieke Janssens created a project named “Smoking Kids” that features kids dressed like adults stereotypes and smoking a cigarette. The purpose of this photo series is to draw attention to how adults impact children. “The aesthetics of smoke and the particular way smokers gesticulate with their hands and posture cannot be denied, but among the different tribes of ‘Smoking Kids,’ – Glamour, Jazz, and The Marginal – there is a nod to less attractive aspects, on the line between the beauty and ugliness of smoking.” The artist said on her website. Those kids in pictures are aged between four and nine years old, cigarette in hand isn’t real tobacco, it’s cheese or chalk sticks instead, and smoke from incense.
