Here’s another series of children, drawn from Mozambique, Honduras and the Dominican Republic. What I like about these images is that the activities they show are ubiquitous throughout poorer parts of the world… and some of the emotions visible universal to children in general.
In a tattered shirt, gazing into a tree to check for ripe mangos, one boy manifests his longing for the simple pleasure of a sweet fruit, while another boy is lost in fantasy with a makeshift cape around his shoulders. A young girl shows the seriousness with which she takes the responsibilities she has been given when she looks down to check on an even younger sibling. And the pictures of a boy pushing a wheel and another shooting his slingshot depict timeless activities that can even be seen in photographs taken generations ago right here in New York City.
