A Birthday Party
Lens Culture... A Birthday Party - Photographs by Vee Speers. "...Some of the innocent ones dress as princesses, dancers, spacemen, or angels — sublime and stunning. Some boys choose the macho images of soldiers or gladiators. Other young party-goers seem more in touch with their dark sides, and arrive as gleefully-mean rodent exterminators or scowling torturers of baby dolls. The scared ones seem as if they were dressed bizarrely by Mommy Dearest and forced to participate against their wills in this nightmare freak show."
