Mom Photographs The Technology-Free Life Of Her Children (26 pics)

Posted in Arts » Photography   15 Apr 2016   / 3989 views

Photographer Niki Boon is living with her four children on a 10-acre property in New Zealand and tries to document their everyday carefree life in natural environment. Her children aren't schooled and she believes that they "are right where they belong covered in mud." As a gift, Niki gives each child a pile of their photos on his or her birthday as these photos are a little treasure which will later tell their childhood stories.

 

“My children are unschooled and live without TV or modern electronic devices”

This is a “lifestyle that may seem unconventional to some”

“But I am here to celebrate the magical place I choose to live with my family”

“I photograph as  physical record of their childhood, life as it is…”

“the real…”

“but also as a reflection of a childhood rooted deep in my own past”

“…a most sincere place of freedom”

“A childhood I now pass on to my own children”

“Although deeply personal I believe that others will also connect to some aspect of their own childhood…”

“I believe my children are right where they belong covered in mud”

“running and living through nature”

“They belong here wild and free”

“where the landscape begins and their little souls end”

Pretty cool, except for the unschooled part. That limits their future to a life of welfare slavery.

unschooled doesn't necessary mean uneducated. The mother must be taking care of the teaching part.

A mother can't pretend be better than a dozen teacher each expert in their field. And if this mother think like that, I guess she doesn't know much and have a pretty high opinion of her abilities (which probably sucks)
