To inspire a discussion about the smoking ban in Belgium, photographer Frieke Janssens, produced this portrait series of different prototypical smokers depicted by children. She was inspired after seeing the video of the Indonesian baby who was hooked on smoking.

By portraying adults as children all  the attention went to the smoking. An adult would draw to much attention to the portrayed person. Thus these portraits evoke question such as: is the smoking ban the right way to get rid of an absurd addiction and are smokers treated like little kids who can’t make the difference between good and bad? While Frieke doesn’t give answers, the portraits are strong enough to start your thinking process!

So what’s your opinion? P.S. the cigarettes used in the photo shoot were made out of cheese.
