This was a project in which I produced a suite of photographic images based around the British urban myth that is Bragolin’s ‘Crying Children’.

Bruno Amadio, popularly known as Bragolin, is the creator of a group of paintings made of crying children, the most famous of which is known as Bragolin’s Blue Boy’. The paintings, which feature a variety of tearful children looking morosely straight ahead, are believed by some to be cursed, the curse causing the owner of the painting’s house to burn down

This is the beginning of a series of projects that will culminate in the complete fabrication of an urban myth.
