Photographer Gabriele Galimberti recently had his photoessay on children around the world and their toys printed in The Times magazine (Sat 26th May).
"At their age, they are pretty all much the same, they just want to play" was his conclusion after 18months working on the project.
"The richest children were more possessive. At the beginning, they wouldn't want me to touch their toys, and I would need more time before they would let me play with them. In poor countries, it was much easier. Even if they only had two or three toys, they didn't really care. In Africa the kids would mostly play with their friends outside."
