Dream-like photos of children living ‘in the borderlands between fantasy and reality’ – The Washington Post

Swedish photographer Simon Johansson’s newest book, “The Young Ones” (journal, 2019), celebrates that time in our lives. The book’s black-and-white photos are themselves wistful, nostalgic depictions of childhood. We see children, well, being children: They do cartwheels, play with their dogs, peer out windows, go to parties and play with their friends. These are most of the things children all around the world do, although these particular photos were mostly made of children living in Europe.
