Children worldwide, with their most valued possessions
This fantastic series from Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti captures children from around the world alongside their favorite items. Pictured above is Chiwa from Mchinji, Malawi, but Galimberti’s subjects range from Zanzibar to Thailand to Texas.
From an introduction by Ben Machell of The Times Magazine
Everyone remembers their childhood toys. The fact that I can recall how most of mine tasted better than I can remember the names of my primary school teachers says everything you need to know about the universe kids inhabit.

“In this new body of work I explore a process formulated in the studio that naturally removes all the pigment from the capillaries in rose petals. It is a complex procedure that over a period of days replaces the pigment with highly purified water leaving behind only the skeletal fibre and plant structure visible; all while the plant still lives and grows.
These beautifully detailed and painterly photographic works are captured underwater and presented ‘as shot’ without the use of post production either traditional or digital.
From the outset I wanted to take this instantly recognisable subject and re-present it in an entirely new and significant way. Originality of process is paramount, even with something as common place as a rose.”
A lot of the Australian Outback looks like somebody spilled something on it.
