Gottfried Heinwein

Digital prints from the series “The Last Child” installed throughout the town of Waterford, Ireland by Austrian-Irish fine artist Gottfried Heinwein.  Heinwein has featured children as the subject of his work for years. “For Helnwein, the child is the symbol of innocence, but also of innocence betrayed. In today’s world, the malevolent forces of war, poverty, and sexual exploitation and the numbing, predatory influence of modern media assault the virtue of children.”
