This photo series depicts Russian child models, whose parents bring them to modeling conventions in order to find work. Their coquettish attire and Lolita-esque poses suggest a type of subordination and even a sensuality that lies in awkward contradiction with their young age. Bratkov alludes to a harsh, mature world where innocence is lost, all the more pressing knowing that his own daughter is featured in the series, too.
