Item description for Secret Games: Collaborative Works with Children 1969-1999 by Wendy Ewald...

Our perceptions of children are only too often distorted by our inclination to project grown-up fantasies of innocence and naivete onto them. Working with children, American photographer Wendy Ewald reveals the lucidity and precision of their powers of observation, gently but assuredly overturning cherished notions of childhood as a paradise lost. In Secret Games Ewald leads you into a world that is as eerie, haunting and threatening as it is joyous and mischievous-life as children really experience it. In 1969, when Wendy Ewald taught photography to children for the first time on a Native American reservation in Nova Scotia, she was stunned by how astute and beautiful their photographs of the environment they were growing up in were. Moving on to the Kentucky Appalachians, she continued working with children, combining her own photographs with the children's photographs and writings. For the past thirty years she has worked with children and women all over the world. Secret Games offers a comprehensive overview of Ewald's collaborative works, with in-depth texts by Ewald tracing the evolution of her work and the ideas guiding it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Secret Games: Collaborative Works with Children 1969-1999?

Simply amazing  Aug 8, 2003
I was fortunate enough to see an exhibition of Wendy Ewald's work two years ago, and it completely changed the way I look at photography. Some accuse her of exploiting children (almost all of 'her' work is either collaboration with children or the work of the children she's taught), but I have to disagree. Rather, I think she's given a voice to children (most of whom are from low income neighborhoods) who otherwise wouldn't have any.
The images in this book (and, for that matter, her other books) are magical in a way that no book free from a child's influence could be. I can't recommend her work highly enough.
