For his touching series “One Day My Child You Will Be,” the famed photographer Malo reminds viewers of the attainability of childhood dreams. The work comprises a group of images in which his then 3-month-old daughter dresses for various careers and lifestyles. In a total breakdown of the gendered ways in which infants might be portrayed in the photos above the mantel, she becomes a superhero, a doctor, a ballerina, and even the first female Pope. Curiously eying the lens, the child embodies all the conceivable fantasies an individual-- regardless of age or gender-- might dream up.
