The children of Eden grow up in a pre-fall Paradise, wild like many tribal children. There is a science behind this – developmental psychology. Many modern Western children grow up with tightly controlled, highly managed lifestyles. There is a growing body of evidence to show that the lack of ‘wild’ play increases the chance of the child developing neuroses and insecurities. The French photographer Alain Laboile is noted for the photographs of his children engaged in wild play on their rural property. They capture a sense of joyful freedom and do a good job of capturing how the children of Eden spend their childhoods.
