Global Street Child encompasses hundred intimate portraits of street children in ten different countries divided in four continents. The portraits show the children in their vulnerability and strength. Because the children were asked to pose in their own manner, these photographs are not biased in victimization. Instead we are confronted with the children in a respectful and direct manner. The interviews show us insights into their hardships and hopes.
