I came across the series “Smoking Kids” by Belgian photographer Frieke Janssens and really loved it. It reminds me a little of Jill Greenberg’s crying kids (she snatches candy from them to make them cry!) but it’s just taken even further. I just love the shock effect of these images, sure to get some people well provoked.

“sure to get some people well provoked” – to say the least. American moms got kind of excited about the candy snatching; this could get really interesting.

Haunting and beautiful and sort of funny too… I love them. I can’t imagine how they could be done without the kids actually smoking – did they?

Again, love your blog. Thanks for taking the time to share such great stuff. : )
