Turning Children’s Imaginations Into Reality

Wonderland image

When a child draws a picture, how can we know what’s really in their mind? Instead of taking your kid to a shrink, get a load of these photos by Korean artist Yeondoo Jung. Jung takes drawings made by children and interprets them literally through photography. While not exactly making fun of children's art (unlike this guy), Jung seems especially interested in presenting how a child’s sense of perspective tends to be flat, with amusing results.

(Thanks Drawn!.)
