Photographer and art director Jonathan Hobin has created a jarring series titled In the Playroom that makes us question what children’s brains are soaking up overtime the news comes on. It’s also a harrowing recap of some of the most tragic, horrific or bizarre events of the last few decades.

“Just as children make a game of pretending to be adults as a way to prepare and ultimately take on these roles in later life, so too do they explore things that they hear or see, whether or not they completely understand the magnitude of the event or the implications of their play,”
