Now I have been using a camera from a very young age, as a kid my Dad would put me on his shoulders, give me his camera and I would be able to take pictures from a better vantage point or over a crowd. I have always enjoyed taking pictures however I have never taken the time to really educate myself on the technicalities, my skills are still fairly basic. So when I came across the work of fourteen year old Zev or Fiddle Oak, I was shocked. Six years younger than myself and his photography shows so much creativity, thought and skill. With a lot of editing and manipulation his photography has an amazing fairytale feel with each image overflowing with magic and wonder. Such great work from someone so young got me thinking about that fact that as we get older society tends to kill many peoples creativity, Ken Robinson did an excellent TED Talk titled “Do schools kill creativity?” in which he discusses this topic.

Zev is a great example of the creative potential of young people who often go ignored and really deserve more credit for work that may often be overlooked merely because of age. Just think, if this is what he can produce at fourteen, what will we see in a few years? With that said, check out his work and let us know what you think.
