Here and there

Four countries. Four cultures. Four everyday activities. A photographic look at what’s the same and what’s different.

Kids! Here and there, they smile when they’re happy. There and here, they frown when they’re sad. Here and there, they inspire us.

Kids! There, a Vegemite sandwich is a preferred snack. Here, niños and niñas ask for churros.

Kids! Some are shy. Others are bold. Some are promising musicians. Others are gifted daydreamers.

Kids! No two are the same, yet they have so much in common.

Kiwanis magazine asked three photographers to capture the differences and similarities among children from four nations. Their assignment: Find children riding a bicycle, reading, eating and visiting a doctor. The results offer an intriguing, pleasant challenge: Find what the children—and cultures—have in common and find what makes each kid—and culture—special.
