Turning Children's Drawings Into Real Life

Miss Sparkle Sprinkles Magic

In this photo series called Wonderland (2005), Korean photographer Yeon Doo Jung brings children's drawings into life - literally - by staging the scene with real people and props.

The whole idea and execution are wonderful: http://www.yeondoojung.com/project.html [Flash, use the green arrow to navigate]- via metafilter

I wonder how this person would interpret my one year old daughter's lines and circles. I would have said maybe train tracks...the map of downtown...spaghetti...That would be awesome.

What the hell are you talking about? Dave Devries does drawings, Yeon Doo Jung uses photography. I personally think it would be harder to stage these and take photos than to draw them. In any case, it's not a rip-off, it's a completely different medium.

link wasn't working for me when I tried (maybe too much traffic). But I wanted to point out, that this isn't a "new" idea. Dave Devries made the rounds on the internet years ago with this idea. I imagine this photographer simply saw someone elses idea and decided to profit.

Don't you hate it when someone steals your idea?
