Gabriele Galimberti is an Italian photographer who travels the world searching for adventure, interesting people, and fascinating stories. His latest project is “Toy Stories" is a collection of photos featuring children posing with their favorite toys. Gabriele learned a LOT while putting together this series, least of which is the fact that children simply want to play. The difference, he found, is in the amount, number, and quality of the toys they get to play with. He also found out that kids from richer countries were more possessive with their toys. It would take him quite a bit of coaxing before they would let him touch their toys. On the other hand, kids in poor countries who has maybe two or three toys didn’t really care since they’d rather play outdoors with their friends.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
