I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.

Inspired by the YouTube video showing a chain-smoking Indonesian toddler, Belgian photographer Frieke Janssens decided to create a series highlighting the seemingly contradictory concept of a child smoking. Her series entitled ‘Smoking Kids’ garnered quite a controversy when it came out. But don’t worry, no cigarettes were harmed in the making of this series. Chalk, cheese, candles, incense , and a loads of misdirection and photo manipulation were used to make it appear that the children were indeed smoking.

Take a look at the artist’s website.
