Selected title German Photo Book Award 2012
The series "Little Adults" explores what it feels like to be a privileged child living in Russia, a country where its radical history and social hierarchy still rules their daily lives. It is the exploration of the recently growing society of the »Nouveau-Riche« in which children have been raised to become the »Elite« and behave like little adults. These portraits express the tension between the natural character and stereotype of appearance co-existing in the world of these children.
