Seeing the world from a kid’s point of view

Sometimes true art comes from the purest of places. We asked local parents to give their kids a phone for 30 minutes so they could take photos of what they see and things they like. No additional direction was given, we just wanted to know how they see the world. In a time where perfectly styled photos inundate our feeds, there’s something refreshing about the organic, imperfect, yet still captivating nature of these photos and the innocent minds behind them.
