In Latin America and the Caribbean, 45% of the children are affected by at least one moderate to severe deprivation, which means that almost 81million people under 18 suffer from child poverty.
My project has been to travel to Latin America and interact with some of the families living in the rural villages of Itaparica and Peru.
The families are very warm and welcome you in to their homes and their hearts. The children are especially warm and friendly and enjoy being photographed. They have very little but they take great pride in what little they do posses. They are delighted to show off their prized possessions. It was an amazing experience to photograph the children with their unusual pets.
