A Sincere Place of Freedom by Niki Boon
I am a homeschooling mother of four, former pediatric physiotherapist, and passionate photographer , living in rural Marlborough , New Zealand.
My photography is focused primarily on my family, and our way of life in our rural environment.
We live a simple life in rural New Zealand, on a 10 acre property surrounded by rivers, coastline, bush and hills.
My children are unschooled and live without TV or modern electronic devises, a lifestyle that may seem unconventional to some, but I am here to celebrate the magical place I choose to live with my family.
I document their days, together, in an environment full of nature and uninhibited play. I photograph asphysical record of their childhood, life as it is… the real …but also as a reflection of a childhood rooted deep in my own past …a most sincere place of freedom.. a childhood I now pass on to my own children. Although deeply personal I believe that others will also connect to some aspect of their own childhood…
I believe my children are right where they belong covered in mud, running and living through nature.
They belong here wild and free and earth connected in a way where the landscape begins and there little souls end.
