I take pictures of children whenever I travel. For me, children symbolize joy and I want this thought to reflect on my experience of traveling in a developing country.
Children, however, are also vulnerable; they can become victims of violence and other atrocious crimes. As responsible adults / travelers, it is therefore our mission to uphold the rights of children and help them wade through life with smiles on their faces.
The Looking Back Photo Series usually involves a single photo but I would like to make an exception in the name of diversity. I’m also presenting my photos in black and white to show the contrast between joy and vulnerability, and to remind our world the importance of protecting our children.
