To be a child by Debra Schoenberger

4 Star


Images of children at work and play in ten different countries including Mongolia, India, Turkey, China, Nepal and Tibet. Documentary photographer Debra Schoenberger aka #girlwithcamera has travelled over 100,000 km to document and share the joy of play in its many forms around the world.

As I become more and more aware of the global reality, I find myself drawn to books of this type that transcend across borders. This one does quite literally with pictures from a few different countries gracing its pages. I found it heartening to see the smiles and joy that the children all shared, no matter where they were from or what their personal circumstances were.

The pictures themselves were a wonderful look into the lives of children, no matter whether they were playing or learning and no matter what continent they found themselves on.

The only thing I wish that would have been different would have been a more varied amount of locations versus the photographer having concentrated on a few specific locations. The descriptions were a bit unnecessary as well as they were not constant and did not seem to add anything to the book.
