Childhood without Electronic Devices

Niki Boon began to make photos when she worked as a physiotherapist in Scotland. While she traveled a lot for work, her interest in art was waning. Niki has begun to photograph again in New Zealand and this country has become native to her. Characters of her works are her four children and their free childhood without modern devices on 10 acres of the earth in New Zealand. Each child receives photos as a present on the birthday from Niki.
