Chinese Street Kids

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 luxury apartments. Kids playing, kids growing up; some of them help their family, others live a risky life, almost abandoned. These kids are depicted with a toy cam, a camera that could also have the children portrayed. 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
