Precious Lamb

This is a damn shame - no offense to the photographer.
Children smoking is sad and disgusting.

( Cigarette Girl )

A writer for I love Belgium woth knowledge of Janssen's work writes;

The children, aged four to nine, are shameless posing while enjoying their cigarette or cigarillo. So why kids? By portraying adults as children all the attention went to the smoking. An adult would draw to much attention to the portrayed person. Thus these portraits evoke question such as: is the smoking ban the right way to get rid of an absurd addiction and are smokers treated like little kids who can’t make the difference between good and bad?"

... I don't care what anyone says about this series, the photography is great.
