Breakfast, from the series Strawberry Fields

College/University: University of Westminster
Course Level/Title: MA Photojournalism

The children depicted in this series live most of the year in a children’s home in Obidimo, Russia. Ekaterina Demidova spent three weeks with them at a summer camp. Most are considered ‘social orphans’, children abandoned by their parents or whose parents have been deemed incapable of giving proper care. They are no one’s children and yet they retain a strong will to survive. Strawberry Fields is a visual journey that reveals an intimate relationship between the children and the environment they live in. www.katyademidova.com
