This is Ruben. He is my younger cousin. I started photographing him in 2012, when he was 6 years old. Seeing him getting older through the years is such a magical thing. In 2013 he told me that he wanted to become a photographer as well, so I gave him one of my camera's. He made some of the pictures himself. In the year 2016 I kind of lost him because of his growing interests in games and virtual life. I barely see him outside of his room anymore. The last photo's are from 2017, just after his 13th birthday.
