No More Nightmares: Kids Show Monsters who’s Boss!

Every child fears the monsters lurking under his or her bed as soon as the lights turn off. But now Paris-based photographer, Laure Fauvel, is helping kids battle those scary, hairy and creepy ghouls one nightmare at a time. “I wanted to show the nightmares in a different way, with children fighting fears and not being victims”, Fauvel, 22, said. (Don’t worry. No monsters were hurt during the making of these photos, Fauvel assured).
