Glamorous Photos of Kids Smoking

Frieke Janssens' images of kids and (fake!) cigarettes capture the ugliness and the not-quite-bygone glamour of smoking.

With their impeccable retro styling, the kids in Frieke Janssens' "Smoking Kids" photos look like they could be lighting up with Marlene Dietrich or Don Draper. But don't worry: Instead of real tobacco, Janssens handed her young models chalk, cheese sticks, and incense. Digital magic did the rest to capture the ugliness and the not-quite-bygone glamour of lighting up.
