Emily Stein's photographs of children blowing bubblegum on beaches around the world are a portrait of the freedom, innocence and joy of youth. The range of facial expressions as the children blow the gum – frustration, excitement, surprise, concentration – tell a story in themselves. 


Emily Stein started taking photographs in the last term of her Fine Art degree. Never able to concentrate for long enough to finish a painting, she picked up a camera and immediately fell in love with photography. Taking pictures enabled her two great loves: going on adventures and meeting new people. These days she photographs people of all ages, often for commercial clients such as MTV, Vice and Puma, and has a natural gift for capturing their energy and individuality.
