A mobile photo studio and acclaimed interactive art experience that allows kids to turn the camera back on their parents.

Each child artist chooses an object, which best represents this adult subject, before art directing a creative portrait directly onto their adult’s face! Each artwork is captured by a professional photographer and becomes part of a public exhibition.
