Picturing Childhood

The Myth of the Child in Popular Imagery

eBook - 2004
Rate this:
Whether highly controversial or taken for granted, pictures of children are everywhere, from magazines, newspapers, and advertisements, to greetings cards and the Internet. Using images from a wide variety of sources, "Picturing Childhood" looks at the endless array of pictures of children designed to entertain, shock, amuse or persuade us to buy. It considers popular imagery in relation to news, entertainment, education, welfare, charity and consumerism, and asks: what implications does this have for the ways in which children themselves are treated? The book is a stimulating and original read for all those concerned with the uses and abuses of childhood and children today.
