Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.

She says, “In a world that spins faster and faster I feel an enormous necessity to focus on the details and the beauty of what still remains. I find myself with a nature that sustains itself but can fall at any moment. It is something that surpasses me and I cannot stop observing.”

Kids From Around the World Photographed with Their Favourite Toys

Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti spent three years travelling the world taking portraits of kids with their most prized possessions. Not simply a charming look at childhood, the series offers a subtle reflection of parents’ ambitions for their children as well as the socio-economic factors at work in how (and with what) children play. The picture above, for example, was taken in a small village in northern Zambia. Coming from an area without water and electricity, the children created a pretend marketplace, making a game of buying and selling some sunglasses they found in a box Galimberti assumes must have fallen from a truck. See more images below or in his book, Toy Stories.
