From Clara's Point of View

Not surprisingly, given the high number of photographers in our family, Clara caught the photography bug at an early age. She frequently borrows my phone to take pictures of life around her. The subjects of her photos are mostly her dolls, dolls I see every day on the bed, on the floor, on the couch. And yet, these dolls that I am usually bending down to pick up look quite different from Clara's point of view- they are her friends, her equals, her playmates.

Clara usually takes these photos when I am busy doing something else, and so it won't be for days or sometimes weeks that I stumble across a dolly portrait in my phone and realize that Clara has been to work. I love the directness and closeness of her photos-- the earnestness that shines through. Although my little girl seems so grown up in so many ways, these photos remind me that she is still a little one seeing the same things I see each day from a very different perspective.
