Children Of The Russian Rich

Der Spiegel has a photo essay showing the tykes of the Russian oligarchs. If you click through it, I'd be interested in hearing your take on it. If we get a comment or three, I'll venture my thoughts, but I wanted to leave it just as a link without commentary so you can form your own opinions free from influence.

Roman (2) is already a little bad ass.

I don't see a real picture there. I see someone deciding on a scene and making the kids dress the way he wants them to, and sitting them where he wants.

Perhaps the headshot picture the girl had input.

There is a 'Lord of the Flies' feel to the pictures. It's hard to say, they all look very posed, who sits on tables like that?

Yeah, that's kind of the thought I had, too. The kids were toys or status symbols, dressed up to show how rich the parent was.

You would need to remove them from the 'glamor' of the environment in order to see the children.....
