"A list of art photographers concentrating on photographing children is not that extensive. Freitag's references are more Arthur Tress than Julie Blackmon, more Helen Levitt than Sally Mann, more Lewis Hine than Lewis Carroll. (The only other photographer who was a nanny, the posthumously famous Vivien Maier, who hardly have a photographic damn about the children she babysat, doesn't count on this list.)"
