Panopticon Gallery‘s newest exhibition, Kids Are People Too, celebrates children in photography as explored through the vision of sixteen photographers, from the well known to the emerging contemporary artist. Inspired by Jason Landry’s own memories of youth, the gallery owner and curator, says, “When I was a boy there was a TV show called, Kids Are People Too. It was like a talk show for kids: a Sunday morning variety show.  My fondest memory of that show was the time that they had my favorite rock band on, KISS. Isn’t it interesting that some childhood memories are quite vivid, while others are long forgotten?” The exhibition is on view from June 8, 2011 until July 12, 2011.

  1. This collection of images perfectly exemplifies the title of the show. It’s a subject that has always attracted me because kids, for the most part, are much closer to their emotions than adults. Only a handful of photographs, but look at the variety. I think each one shines with true beauty.
