This will be a series of posts that will collect slowly over time. The idea is to collect photographs... from Fotografiska (Museum of Photography) here in Stockholm, and sometimes maybe my own photographs too...
The idea is to use the photographs to stimulate dialogues with children... so these posts are not going to be long... just some images and some questions to get dialogues started.
If you are in the Stockholm region, then you could always bring your children to Fotografiska and explore the photographs that way... of coming with young children with the aim to talk about a few of the images... then it can be an idea to visit first as an educator and discover some of the photos that you think would interest your children the most and encourage the best dialogue... and it is also good to check which photos to avoid... some exhibitions are not suitable for young children... or include images that some might find frightening, not because they are scary per se but there is a child with a particular fear... for instance when my children were younger they went through a short phase where clouds and owls were scary... so I would not have taken them to see photos of those and expect a deep meaningful dialogue... children need to feel comfortable to participate. You will know your children best and know what will work (or what to avoid).
This post has three photographs - two from the Viviane Sassen exhibition and one from the Irving Penn exhibition.
