Orly - Brownsville,Texas

Alessia – Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy

Shot over a period of 18 months, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s project Toy Stories compiles photos of children from around the world with their prized possesions—their toys. Galimberti explores the universality of being a kid amidst the diversity of the countless corners of the world; saying, “at their age, they are pretty all much the same; they just want to play.”

The whole set of photos is here. Also worth checking out: Galimberti's "Switzerland Vs the World" series.
