Children have such a heightened sense of imagination. They are able to play with things that were not meant to be played with—sometimes this is dangerous, sometimes harmless. They see the fun in everything. “Playing in Danger” explores the child’s brain and what they may see when out around Halifax.  Some have potential to be dangerous, such as the slides going straight in the Harbour, or playing ball in the middle of the street. Others are more playful like the waterpark hydrant in place of a real one, or the play telescope at the front of a ship.

This project was created by photographing scenes in Halifax, as well as playground equipment. Using Photoshop, the playground equipment was then constructed in order to seem a natural part of these scenes.
