Andrea Kalfas – New York Times Letters




New piece for the New York Times Letters section about the rise and perhaps over-diagnoses of ADHD in children and young adults. For this one I created a play on keepsake silhouette portraits parents have made of their kids, plastered with prescription slips. Many childhoods these days may be defined by kids’ energetic, sometimes wild, but perhaps much-more-natural-than-is-granted behavior curbed with medications, which is what the article fears. You can check out the article online here.

Thanks to art director Alexandra Zsigmond for the assignment!
