Age is key, apparently. Young children seem to be more affected by screen-time, while with teen-agers it is more complicated, are they addicted or the digital space is where all their friends are?
Does the experience facilitate any form of learning or is it only blocking the creative process? Is this habit shaping a generation of technology-addicted children?
My approach in taking these portraits varies depending on the age group. With young children, I re-create a situation as it was told me by the parents, with older children I am planning to use participatory techniques to create the right image. My aim is to produce 50 portraits of children between 0 to 17 years old.I am collecting stories from parents, relatives, carers and children themselves, so please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your experience.
