The Pink & Blue Project
I love this photography project by JeongMee Yoon. The Pink & Blue Project shows small children surrounded by their pink or blue belongings. It was instigated by her daughter who loved the colour pink so much that, "she wanted to wear only pink clothes and play with only pink toys and objects".
JeongMee discovered that this was not unusual and in fact a worldwide phenomenon, regardless of cultural background, ethinic group or nationality, so she set about exploring the, "trends in cultural preferences and the differences in the tastes of children (and their parents) from diverse cultures, ethnic groups as well as gender socialization and identity".
It's amazing when you look through the images just how many toys and clothes they have and interestingly the girls all seem to have far more than the boys!
