I hated growing up. Still do. And in a way, I suppose I still haven’t. When I was a kid I was never allowed Playstations or Nintendos, O played with blocks and pieces of paper and keyboards and slides. But to me, those were the Eifel Tower, an old-time war plane, a grand piano, a roller coaster. I was part of the last generation to grow up without smartphones and iPads. I grew up with sticks and legos and big wheels — what was I supposed to do but use my imagination?

Never Forget to Play is a series of images showing the world as children see it, reminding us, as adults, to never forget to use our imagination. Here’s to never growing up.
