There should be no connection to alchoholism and childhood. Unless this is a psychopathic kid growing up to be a serial killer, this picture doesn't connect to the shoot at all.

I don't get this.

lol what???

very disturbing - doesn't evoke the idea of "childhood" at all to me as the doll evokes an adult woman, rather than a child

What a message this delivers. Probably won't ribbon, but certainly deserves some other recognition for effective delivery of a strong message.

Your kids drink?

I'm not sure what you're attempting. Inevitable I think many people will be confused.

Broken childhood through alcoholism?? If it is not that, then I do not get it, sorry.

made me think

at first look, i didn't get it, but now i do and having come from a childhood that was heavily influenced by an alcoholic father, i can't believe i didn't get it at first. i think the photo seems a little out of focus, but the concept has a lot of impact and really makes you think

Hmmm. Interesting.

this is childhood or an ad for AA

I'm sorry... but this doesn't say "childhood" to me.

I suppose that does happen!

poignant message
