In a society as the one we live in today, where people and even
children have to deal with stress on daily basis, I ask myself; can
kids still be kids? Aren't we expecting too much from them on a
very early age? I photographed children who are in their first year
of school as if they were adults. ‘Als ik later groot ben’ is an
exaggeration of my fear that in the future children won’t be able to
be a child anymore.
