SMOKING KIDS



29 Wednesday 29th May 2013

Remember that video of the fat Indonesian kid who smoked 40 cigarettes a day? It went viral within hours and inspired Flemish photographer Frieke Janssens to produce a surreal series of contradictory images that would grab attention and stimulate thought.

Janssens was interested in how smoking is viewed in the world at a time when many cultures have banned it from public spaces. Dressed as miniature adults in vintage clothes, her young subjects reflect the retro glamour of smoking before the Mad Men days and provide a controversial exploration of social contexts. The result - thought-provoking, sinister images that are undeniably pleasing.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
