The 'Measuring Up' photo series follows a young boy who has been taken on a trip to the local carnival only to be told that he is not big enough to enjoy the rides. The crushing disappointment he feels is portrayed throughout the somber photo shoot. Portrayed as a ghost town, the young boy sadly clings to his mother as they walk around the grounds.
Shot by LaNola Stone, an artist and photographer based in New York City, the Measuring Up series was created as part of a challenge given by Harvey Stein for photographs to shoot Coney Island. The emotions present in the Measuring Up photo series contrast completely with the magic present right now during the holiday season.
