Happy New Year everyone! I begin this new year with a resolution in images. This series by Frieke Janssens, which shows kids who smoke, was made after the video of the two-year-old Indonesian who smoked 40 cigarettes a day, which reached the whole world via Youtube. In these portraits of children, both offensive and aesthetically beautiful with amazing costumes, the artist has put children in an adult context to isolate the viewer’s focus upon the issue of smoking itself.
*Note that no real cigarette has been used on the set.
