I SEE YOU LIKE THIS by Jessica Wilson with Matilda Woodroofe

How does your child see you? Give them the camera, and find out.
Often the reluctant subjects of their parent’s cameras; children are asked to smile, look natural, stay still and come in closer.
I See You Like This turns the camera around, children become the art director and their adults the subject. Through this new lens, what will the child’s imagination reveal?
Intimate, surprising and fun, I See You Like This is an interactive art experience created by Jessica Wilson with designer Matilda Woodroofe and photographer Carla Gottgens to celebrate the fascinating relationship between parent and child.
Children are given permission to observe and portray their parent, while parents are able to experience being ‘seen’ by their child. Each child artist chooses an object, which best represents this adult subject, before art directing a creative portrait directly onto their parent’s face! Each artwork is captured by a professional photographer in a special studio and can be taken home to share.
