double takes: The Birthday Party: Vee Speers

I’ve seen this series of photographs by Vee Speers pop up several times on various blogs. Each time, they catch my eye and interest as much as the first time I saw them. In ‘The Birthday Party’ series, Speers tries to break the conception of boundless happiness associated with childhood. In doing so, her photographs address issues of premature adulthood. The photographs are both intense and overwhelming.
