The article by Sharples discusses a study done in Europe which children of 7, 11, and 15 years of age were given single use cameras to use as they pleased. They then talked to the children about the pictures they took and what the act of taking pictures meant to them. The study identified some differences in children’s photography based on their level of understanding and their intentions when taking the picture. The second link was cool because you could actually see the pictures taken by the above mentioned children along with quotes telling you what the children had to say about their pictures and why they took them. It’s also neat that you can view the photographs by age, gender, or the theme of the picture. The article by Stewart offers the view of children as natural photographers. The article discusses a similar study to the one done in Europe only this study involved children as young as four years of age. The purpose of this study was to determine the intentions of children when taking photos, what children thought about their photos and how they viewed the act of photography. In this study the children were also given single use cameras to use as they pleased. The findings of this study revealed qualitative differences in photographs taken by children of differing ages. The older children were found to be better able to reflect on their photography and are better able to vocalize their intentions when taking the photo. While young children were found to take emotionally or visually stimulating pictures, eleven year olds were found to take more photographs of the outdoors and showed a greater appreciation for visually pleasing objects or environments. After reviewing the preceding information it becomes clear that even four year olds can use photography as a mode of expression.
