The way children see the world – the innocence of inexperience that fills them with wonder, confusion, and joy – is adorable and enviable in equal amounts. Dr Seuss, the children’s author, once said that ‘adults are obsolete children’ – in the hustle and bustle of our busy lives it’s true that we forget the way we approached life and the carefree pleasures we enjoyed during childhood.
Occasionally we get little reminders that bring about a sense of nostalgia for simpler times, like the first taste of ice cream in summer, curling up on the sofa to watch your favourite film with your best friend, or walking barefoot on freshly mown grass. We hope this collection of photographs bring back some of the simple pleasures of your childhood.
Thank you to all the photographers who have shared their wonderful work with us!
