exhibition provides an international social survey of photojournalism’s
interest in the lives of the world’s children. It focuses on children as
members of a global society in which their needs are sometimes nobly met, yet
are sometimes neither met nor understood. Works explore children’s physiological
well-being, their safety, their sense of being loved and appreciated, their
freedom to hope for a fulfilling future, and their inner disposition to
participate in something larger than themselves.
