In Adventures in Childhood, I’m photographing the day to day activities on which my children embark in the world outside our home. Through this project, I remember the feels of joy and excitement that I experienced as a child—a welcome contrast to the monotonous slog I now experience of packing enough snacks and water and sunscreen to take three children on a half-day outing. These adventures are not necessarily monumental or unique, but in my children’s eyes they are exhilarating.  For an instant, when I capture that spirit, I share in their enthusiasm; I see the world from their perspective. And I understand why the effort to undertake these discoveries is so important for all of us.
