The project: Photograph a child from each country of the world. The catch: Every kid needs to be a resident of New York City.
New York being New York, NYChildren is a project that’s almost completed. But 46 countries remain unphotographed, and photographer Danny Goldfield is seeking those remaining children in order to complete this phase of his work, which he hopes will lead to a gathering of his subjects he calls the Dream Event as well as other extensions of the concept, including video projects and further social events.
So, New Yorkers and those who love them: Check the list of countries remaining and see if you know any children in one of the five boroughs who fit the criteria. And if one of those kids happens to belong to you, would you mind letting me know how the Dream Event gathering turns out? It sounds completely awesome.
