"The Birthday Party"
Photographer Vee Speers entitles her series of children as Birthday Party, but there is little festive about this group of children who are dressed up with seemingly nowhere to go. They cast looks of ennui at the camera and appear as small adults. What are they thinking as they look at the camera? Are they anxious for the cake and ice cream? If so, they do not show it. Rather, they almost look as though they might be ready to go home.
