Developing A Child’s Eye

Picasso said, and I’m paraphrasing, he had to “unlearn” everything he knew about art through conventional learning and just try to become a kid again with his work, to regain its freedom.

Outside of the real possibility that he might simply drop the camera (which he did) and break it (which he didn’t) I feel there’s so much learning in having that access. I once read a book which documented the importance of children’s play (its ability to mimic real-life) and its importance in their learning, as well as its ability to help teach adults, so I’m game.

Children shouldn’t be denied these types of chances to learn. His photos weren’t bad either—a little too much bum here or there but, hey, it was “eye level”.
