Big Apple Kids from 194 Countries

Danny Goldfield’s NYChildren project captures images of kids from every country, residing in New York City. The spirit of the project has become more than just pictures.

NY Children Project - 4 childrenThe NYChildren project has a goal to capture images of a child from each of the world's 194 countries. The caveat: they must all reside in New York City.

At the outset, it was all about the pictures. However, with children from 170 countries photographed to date, Danny Goldfield saw the project turn into something much larger: a celebration of diversity that can build bridges in a multi-cultural community.

"NYChildren is an opportunity to help repair the world," he explains.

Goldfield says his dream is that upon completion of the photo project, he would hold an event where families that have participated could meet each other and celebrate. "The true mission," he says, "is to gather and nurture an inclusive community of children and create opportunities for them to meet and learn about each other, and form friendships."

Today, the photographer is still seeking children from 24 countries, including Andorra, Benin, North Korea, Samoa, and Vatican City.

This video was produced by GOOD, an integrated media platform for people who want to live well and do good.
