Through the Eyes of a Child

When Don and Ashley Sabourin’s daughter received a camera for her fourth birthday, they were struck by the unique first-person perspective from the eyes of a 4-year-old in her photographs. She took photos of her friends that only another child could capture, and framed images of the world that she thought were interesting or important to her. They decided to provide cameras to see what children see and how they live, and to embrace the diversity of children in Bay County. Their photographs will show their unwritten life, with the hope of providing a better understanding of how they see the world.
