Street Kids is a photographic project depicting the last moments of a disappearing reality in China.
Cities grow, neighborhoods change, however alleys and messy streets run below the modern skyscrapers. Here, children live a humble life, so much different from the life of their peers who live in the luxury apartments. Kids playing, kids growing up; some of them help their family, other live a risky life, almost abandoned. These kids are depicted with a toy cam, a camera that could also have the children portayed. These children are the last witnesses of a way of life that is fast disappearing as is increasingly rare the use of the film. Photos by Dominique Musorrafiti

CHINA-UNDERGROUND. Ciao! My name is Dominique. I’m Italian and I’m proud to be a mix. My father was an Italian chemical engineer and high school teacher, with Greek and Polish heritage. My mother is Haitian, she was high school language teacher, with Dominican, Spanish, French, Portuguese, African and Native American heritage. Being a mix makes me appreciate to want to understand different cultures and lifestyles. I grew up in Italy, lived few years in Haiti, travel around main European capitals, lived seven years in China, six in Spain and UK. Traveling makes me feel that we can learn something from every situation in every part of the world.
