Childhood without Interntet – by Niki Boon

“We live a simple life in rural New Zealand, on a 10 acre property surrounded by rivers, coastline, bush and hills.”

My children are unschooled and live without TV or modern electronic devises, a lifestyle that may seem unconventional to some, but I am here to celebrate the magical place I choose to live with my family.

I document their days, together, in an environment full of nature and uninhibited play. I photograph as  physical record of their childhood, life as it is… the real …but also as a reflection of a childhood rooted deep in my own past …a most sincere place of freedom.. a childhood I now pass on to my own children. Although deeply personal I believe that others will also connect to some aspect of their own childhood…

I believe my children are right where they belong covered in mud , running and living through nature.

They belong here wild and free and earth connected in a way where the landscape begins and there little souls end.

One thought on “Childhood without Interntet – by Niki Boon

  1. This is a powerful and courageous way that you chose to live. I have one question–when you say that your children are unschooled, are you meaning conventional schools. Do you teach them reading, math, etc?
