Throw Shapes by Oumayma B. Tanfous for Kinfolk


Oumayma created this kids' editorial for Kindling's first edition, a new magazine by Kinfolk for parents. The concept of this shoot revolved around shadow theatre.

In collaboration with
Magazine opened on two pages of kids doing funny mimics with their hands like shadow shows for an editorial for kindling.

"The kids had to stay still and it was a near impossible mission! All in all, it was a very fun project and I'm glad I could contribute to the very first issue of the magazine."
