The Project “The Shrinking Horizons of Childhood” is a project that asks the question 'Do children need nature anymore?' Irish photographer Mike O’Toole was inspired to develop the project after reading an account by Reins Michels, former Dutch football coach, about how he saw a family pull up their car near woods in Holland. The dog immediately ran out of the car but the children stayed put. They did not recognize the woods as a place of play, of freedom or adventure.
