This article deals with children images in Brazilian newspapers and magazines. For our analysis, we have chosen two of the most important diaries, Folha de S. Paulo and O Estado de S. Paulo, and the principal weekly magazine, Veja. In our country there is a special law to regulate the publication of children and teenager photography. Newspapers and the magazines have two forms of representation: a journalistic form and an illustration form.

The journalistic form is a traditional representation: there are photographies of children in risk situation or violence. There is a lot of illustration photographies in “guide sections”.
