My series Here & There explores where – on the continuum of modernity, post-modernity and meta-modernity – the current-day experience of childhood sits. Forever innocent and hopeful, our children are the incarnation of the post-war ideals we once cherished. Yet they are also the offspring of postmodern parents. Their worlds are globalised, constructed and curated. They are also defined by complete technological immersion. The children in these images were deliberately photographed at their most ordinary. They seamlessly move between old-fashioned ‘child’s play’ and their immersive devices, simultaneously embodying the ideals of modernity and post-modernity.
