Toy Stories: Photos of Children from Around the World and Their Favourite Things

For over a year, the photographer and journalist Gabriele Galimberti visited more than 50 countries and created colourful images of boys and girls in their homes and neighbourhoods with their most prized possessions: their toys. Now she is about to release a new book in their honour, named Toy Stories: Photos of Children from Around the World and Their Favourite Things.

From Texas to India, Malawi to China, Iceland, Morocco, and Fiji, Galimberti recorded the spontaneous and natural joy that unites kids despite their diverse backgrounds. Whether the child owns a veritable fleet of miniature cars or a single stuffed monkey, the pride that Galimberti captures is moving, funny, and thought provoking.
