From a very young age, boys know who they are, and they tackle the world with all the passion and spirit they can muster. The contagious spirit and courageous sense of adventure of boys allows them to teach us to celebrate every event in life, whether that be a chance to find a mud puddle to stomp around in or an opportunity to throw a football or a baseball in the backyard with other kids from the neighborhood. In the exuberant, expressive faces of boys, Karen Henrich sees into their souls and glimpses their sense of unending, insatiable wonderment and their beautiful, tender hearts. Her photographs share all of that and remind us that life goes by all too fast, not only for boys, but for all of us. As you see a glimpse of a boy's soul through his expression, it is my wish that you will take a moment to share in their wonderment and their world. Through the images in The Wonder of Boys, we can experience our world anew. Welcome to the wonderful world of boys.
