Deborah Parkin

Deborah Parkin uses black and white film to create photographs based upon her childhood memories and to record the lives of her children. Her evocative photographs portray the feelings of childhood like playfulness, fear and loneliness. I find her work fascinating because even as adults we face similar childhood emotions and can easily be placed inside her photographs. Plus, can you imagine the beautiful memories her children will have as they grow older?

My favourite photo is of the girl facing the ocean. It has almost and eerie feeling to it.

It's frightening how easily some childhood fears and inadequacies come back to you. That last picture conjures up such loneliness, but at the same time, comfort in being alone. Sometimes, it's one in the same.

These are so beautiful. I love the mask one. They are all so haunting and a bit creepy but also really sweet and beautiful. Love.
