The Bite Magazine 'Enfant Soldats' editorial takes a controversial subject and glamorizes it. Although not many people will approve of the theme, it could be argued that the images, though not reflective of the situation at all, does force people to acknowledge the existence of child soldiers in third world countries. The machine guns and somber expressions also provide a stark contrast to the fashion being showcased, which emphasizes the dichotomy between two worlds even more.

Shot on location by photographer Gilad Sasporta, the Bite Magazine 'Enfant Soldats' editorial appears in the publication's February 2014 issue. It stars models Francis Villalva and Alima Fofana. They were both outfitted in eclectic ensembles by stylist Lu Philippe Guilmette. Stats for Child Soldier-Inspired Editorials Trending: This Year & Mild
