Entry Description:

Children want many things and they love masquerading
themselves and trying different identeties.In the age between
7 and 10 years, the middle childhood,their fantasy let them
overcome the barriers easily between reality and
imagination.For some oblivious hours,they are able to slip into
different roles and thanks for the intensity of their
imagination they are not only able to experience their storys-no,
they live them.They turn from actors of their
fantasy to princesses and princes,fighters,heroes,legend figures.
They dont need costumes,just their imagination.
Nevertheless,the metarmorphosis doesnt proceed only inside
them,it has a visual external effect.
They keep childlike and themselves and at the same time they
radiate the grace,the willingness,the pride and the
courage of the figures,from wich they adopt the roles in the
play.With my photo project MiniHeroes I capture this fantastic,
enviable metarmophosis. To visualise the basis
of pure imagination, I add for each child the symbolic accessory
with needle and thread into the photographic reality
of each portrait.
