(11/19/2007)

Photos of the faces of young children can portray a singular innocence unblemished by unfulfilled dreams, the knowledge of betrayal, or the faint traces of cynicism that the inevitable march of time bestows on adults. Devoid of pretense and firmly rooted in the "here and now"– the smiles, laughter and tears of a child offer a fascinating reflection of the wondrous place children inhabit before the rude eviction awaiting them in the year's ahead.

18 year-old Bali resident Leon Vrielink originally embarked on taking pictures of children at a local hospital as part of a school project at the Bali International School. Born to a Singaporean mother, Jeane Seah, and a well-known artist and designer father, Nico Vrielink, Leon has lived in Bali for three years where he acquired his passion for photography. Say Leon, "When I'm taking photos, I feel that I am enjoying life and that I am sinking into other people's lives by taking shots of them."

His second public exhibition of photography, Visions of a Monday Morning preserves moments in time of sick and injured children at Bali's Bumi Sehat Hospital According to Leon, he tries to capture through his lens the life of Balinese children and, in a larger sense, a representation of innocence and beauty that is, for this young photographer, the very essence of Bali. Says Leon, "I wish to give conscience that poverty is still around. In Bali, not all people can afford to go to hospital, so they become sick and have a difficult life. Organizations like Bumi Sehat where I took my photos, are here to help these people and to give them hope."

20% of the proceeds from the sale of the photographs at the current exhibition will be donated to a children's charity.

Despite his young age, the current exhibition is Leon's second show. A previous showing of his works in the Sanur area of Bali was well received. When asked what lies ahead, Leon responded, "I'm trying to keep my options open for the future and taking as many shots as I can for upcoming exhibitions. After graduation, I intend to study photography in Holland"
