At the same time, these are slightly goofy portraits of children. I wonder what they thought about someone coming into their room, rearranging their possessions and asking them to pose! Some of the boys seem quite game, striking a pose as if surveying their domain. Most of the kids seem comfortable enough, though. Then, of course, the photos can practically overpower you with color; I might have known on some level that we've made pink and blue "feminine" and "masculine" colors, but it's still a bit of a shock to see the point made so bluntly.
