Creepy kids take the cake with Alain Delorme

All levels of crazy wrong, but still strangely delicious. This is not the guy you want taking portraiture of your kids – unless you have a fetish for Barbie dolls and icing. Alain Delorme is a French photographer who specialises in what he calls "pixel-surgery". He manipulates what would otherwise be perfectly cute photographs and turns them into something a lot more creepy. Taking a strong stance on advertising and its perversion of youth, he grabs our attention by exaggerating what we all know is true below the makeup caked surface. Instead of projections of innocence, they become weapons of mass consumption. With pavlovas.

Delmore's work is similar to Susan Anderson's child beauty pageant photography that we featured earlier this year. After seeing both of these galleries, please go give your daughter/niece/little sister a big hug and tell her that she doesn't want rhinoplasty for her eighth birthday. Just don't go hug a random little girl on the swing set, as I'm pretty sure that's illegal in some way.

I'm actually scared of what these kids will become and be capable of. Also, having the mothers hand in frame is a clever addition to the series, because she plays such a pivotal role in this sadness.

Oh my stars. I know some adult women who look like a few of these girls and I will never look at them the same way again. Also- had to Google pavlovas. I'd eat that.

Did you think they were some kind of semi-automatic weapon? No, no. Just a delicious egg-based Australian desert. Google 'lamington' as well. And 'peach melba'. And 'monte carlo'.
