15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
heavenly children

For about 3 mounts I had worked in a kids photo shoot studio .during this time I have noticed just kids from rich family with their parents came there .so I recognize poor family can’t afford to bring their children to photo shoot studio and such children are always hidden from the public sights .so myself went to find this kind of children in their own neighborhoods for taking picture from them. Billions of people around the world live in poverty. The economy shuns them. The environment attacks t In working with kids in poverty all around the world, we see poverty trying to steal joy, destroy dignity hem. They suffer physically, emotionally and spiritually. But poverty doesn’t always win. Not even close. Had witnessed beautiful children living in poverty. The reason why did I chose to photograph children from my country is I used to dream, SUPPORTING THE CHILDREN IN NEED
