‘I always think there was some bridge between Arbus's photos of children and Beaton’s photos of children.  Their resulting imagery portrays part adult part innocent in the garden or nestled in seas of cow parsley ... again, here, this little girl is at the door of an un-knowing adulthood... but she seems to know something I don’t.’ Tim Walker
