Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti spent 18 months taking photographs of children around the world posing with their most prized possessions. The project is called Toy Stories, and you can see a nice sampling of it here.
All of the photos, along with a longer essay about the project, can be viewed on Mr. Galimberti’s website, here.
What a beautiful and thought-provoking project. As someone named Graeme Stuart writes in the comments section of the feature shoot article: “…It certainly highlights the differences in standard of living – but not necessarily quality of life.” How true.
