Toy Stories

By Gabriele Galimberti

Hardcover, 110 pages ($24, Abrams Image)

 

The premise is simple enough: kids and their toys. But photographer Galimberti, who spent three years traveling the world for this project, brings out a spectrum of diversity—and makes a poignant statement about the universality of play—in these 54 meticulously posed portraits of individual children from America, India, China, Fiji, Iceland and dozens of other countries posing with their favorite dolls, games, stuffed animals, plastic guns, action figures, balls and bats or other tokens of activity, companionship and imagination.
