Attempting to address the photography of children in the late 1990s is a difficult and potentially dangerous exercise. _I Spy_ takes up the challenge by means of a unique combination of new colour and black and white photographs and newly commissioned writing. A book to savour, it addresses two related issues in the contemporary photography of children: how children photograph themselves and how they are portrayed by modern women photographers. It includes, for example, children's photographs of their homes, families and environment, a body of work on twins, a mother's photographs of her daughter and powerful essays expressing poetic, personal and critical approaches. Together, images and words describe intimate, surprising facets of the visual world of childhood.The contributors are: Melissa Benn, Linda Bullock, Wendy Ewald, Catherine Fahily, Jane Fletcher, Suzanne Greenslade, Patricia Holland, Holly Street Public Art Trust, Caroline Molloy, Kate Newton, Cath Pearson
