Little girls smoking

I have always been impressed by the photos of little girls smoking cigarettes. Here below the ones I remember:


A picture by  Joseph Szabo, shot in 1969, taken from his book of photographs Almost Grown.

Amanda and her Cousin Amy: Mary Ellen Mark photographed Amanda Marie Ellison, 9 (right), and Amy Minton Velasquez, 8, in Valdese, N.C., in 1990.

In 1990 Mary Ellen Mark, acclaimed photographer, took one of her most memorable shots, titled Amanda and her cousin Amy. The picture was very discussed at the time, since the girl smoking was only 9 years old.


Last but not least, Candy Cigarette, shot by Sally Mann in 1989. The little girl smoking is her daughter.
