Growing Pains

Each of these works, when arranged together, depict a timeline of childhood naivety and oblivion to adulthood realities. A child's innocence is stripped away from him/her over time through exposure to war/conflict, sexualization, education, cultural standards and a growth of self-conscienceness and self-awareness.

Possible title ideas:
Growing Pains
Childhood Lost
Adolescence Lost
Premature Maturity

Added pieces:
Mary Ellen Mark's photo of a smoking girl
Banksy's Child Soldier or Charlie Brown
To Kill A Mockingbird/Catcher in the Rye
Barbie doll/Bratz doll

LATCH Organizations:
Time - Age of adolescent depicted; date/time of art creation
Categorial - Loss of innocence through war/conflict, education, sexualization
Hierarchical - Levels of innocence
