In Anna Skladmann’s ‘Little Adults’ series, the photographer explores what it feels like to grow up as a privileged child in Russia, a country where its radical history still rules the daily life. It is the exploration of the recently growing society of the “Noveau-Riche” in which children have been raised to become the ‘elite’ and behave like little adults.

Photographing Russia’s new generation of children reflects the extreme contrast between social hierarchies, touches on the control of family aspirations, ideas of normality, the loss of childhood and the constant desire for fame. In these intriguing, yet somewhat disturbing images, Skladmann takes a look inside the lives of some of Russia’s most wealthy kids.
