I adore the glorious chaos depicted in Julie Blackmon's photo collection titled 'Domestic Vacations.' Each of the children photographed looks like they're having a ton of fun getting in a heap of trouble--except, perhaps, for the fellow in the fifth picture, who looks like he's been placed on time-out.

The photos in 'Domestic Vacations' are beautiful for a number of reasons. The pigment ink prints are gallery-worthy. And Julie Blackmon has captured childlike rowdiness in a way that many adults cannot. These images have a sort of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys feel to them, as if the rules and limitations of the adult world have no bearing whatsoever.
