No Candy

Abuse



In the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant, 4 professional sporters anonymously tell their sad and schocking story about the abuse they suffered by their coaches during their youth. Now, years later, the adult sporters dare to talk. We were asked to make a photograph to illustrate the story. We photographed three young children, also anonymously, and let them pose in front of our camera so we could remind the readers what a child's body looks like. Fragile, insecure and innocent. But above all totally off limits to anyone who would want to harm it. Unfortunately our picture did not make it to print. The editor in chief found the photograph too confrontational.
