Totally different flavor of photo
Yes, absolutly. Totally different photo
sets. The sets of photos tell different stories. Weirdly, it may seem, that Jessica Dubrof and Jessica Watsons are similar: both photo sets show close ups of the face, some photos quite posed to make the person look good, the 7 years old wear ing adult style clothes. The subject is quite obviously the person. In Laura dekkers set you camera
framing is normally wider and more often showing her boat. The subject is girl and boat.
In the two Jessica sets there are far fewer photos of the plane or boat. The plane and boat are almost irrelevant, apparently!
Then theres lots of minor things like the actual clothes they are wearing etc. but the point is, as you noticed, they end up with a totally different flavour.
The most salient point it the photos of Jessica Druboff in her cap that says "Women Fly" she was 7 for F's sake!! Or maybe I should say, that is the point, she would be alive if she waited till she was a woman.
The last tragic note is the "inspiration" for the 7 year olds flight record
attemp was another youngest to fly over the USA who was 11 at the time of her record
. But the death of Jessica haunted her and a few years later she suicided.
