Photographer Jamie Johnson captures the age old punishment of transcribing bad deeds on the chalkboard and captures it in her child photo series titled 'I Will Not...'

Each photograph depicts a child writing their specified vice on the board, yet the photographs are ironic because the children are usually dressed as the implication they are trying to avoid or holding their vice in the opposing hand while writing their promises.
These confessionals are centered around adult nature, and include habits such as drinking before 5 pm, smoking or dating actresses.

The series creates an interesting juxtaposition, because it taps into child-like innocence alongside grown-up reality. The rich sepia tones and gritty composition create a vintage feeling akin to olden days with a modernized concept.
