Children At Play Recreating Famous News Stories

Photos of children at play seem innocent and playful, however, this is not always the case. Photographer Jonathan Hobin has created a series titledĀ In the Playroom that challenges the media-oriented society and makes us wonder what effects our constant newsfeed has on the community, especially children.

“Just as children make a game of pretending to be adults as a way to prepare and ultimately take on these roles in later life, so too do they explore things that they hear or see, whether or not they completely understand the magnitude of the event or the implications of their play,” Hobin says.
