We are always on a search where cool things happen. And for these kids the cool things are happing in their room. Photographer Gabriele Galimberti made an very interesting photography series of Kids from around the world show off their Toys.
Everyone remembers their childhood toys. This nostalgia, was the inspiration behind the photography serie ‘Tor Stories’. He was not expecting to uncover much we did not already know: kids love dolls and dinosaurs and trucks and cuddly monkeys. But he found out that more common was how the toys reflected the world each child was born into: so the girl from an affluent Mumbai family loves Monopoly, because she likes the idea of building houses and hotels, while the boy from rural Mexico loves trucks, because he sees them rumbling through his village to the nearby sugar plantation every day.
Ultimately, the toys on display reveal the hopes and ambitions of the people who bought them in the first place. “Doing this, I learnt more about the parents than I did about the kids,” says Galimberti.
