Children’s Peace Image of the Year: Slow Stream

A girl is wandering dreamily between heaven and earth, like she is secured by a net. The sun is shining on her right hand, trees provide a canopy. The peace which has been captured here, is the peace of a protected as well as a free childhood. There are no walls, there are no boundaries, dangers possibly unknown, rules are only based on reason. A childhood in the country. This picture was taken by the twelve-year old Dune Laboile, the fifth of six siblings, when camping at the banks of the French brook Dordogne.
