Children's Artwork: It's Alive!

For months, South Korean photographer Yeondoo Jung oversaw kindergarten art classes, chose some of the masterpieces, and with the help of fashion designers and high school students to act as models, recreated the children's work with real people and props to be captured on film. Not only are the photographs unique and brilliant, to see the children's imaginations brought to life makes the original artwork seem even more incredible. Jung stayed as true to the originals as he could, replicating uneven sleeves or the subject's physical features. I admire him for giving so much credence to kid's art -- bringing it to the professional art world and making us realize that it's actually not just kid stuff.
