So I noticed this book. It is about children's photography. In the 1970s, the author, a photographer herself, lead a course for school kids in Appalachia. The kids were taking pictures of their families, making self-portraits and, which is the freaky part, presentation of their dreams. One series like that is called I dreamt the twins tried to kill each other. The kids were passionate photographers but once they reached puberty, the fantasy and interest wasn't there anymore. I like the atmosphere of the pictures, time period and the whole process of making a thing to happen. The way the kids are eager for something interesting going on.
