Through the eyes of babes

Saw some startlingly beautiful photographs taken by children of Beslan, Russia to commemorate the first anniversary of the siege on their school.

It was on September 1 when the school was taken over and 338 children and adults killed.

The photographs were taken as part of a UNICEF workshop, and some of the teenage photographers are survivors of the attack.

The symbolism of the water bottles and cigarettes is interesting.

And pictures 12, 13 and 14 are a perfect close to the photo essay.
