Children From Every Country in the World Living in New York

Danny Goldfield is not a regular New York city life photographer. Instead of capturing the buzz in the streets, he finds his subject on local playgrounds.

“I don’t think there is any other city you can do this in the world than New York,” says D. Goldfield. “I thought it would be great to show New York as a home for children from all over, and it would be an opportunity through these photos for everyone, at least in New York, to meet their neighbors.” With the help of local community groups, immigration and day care centers, children from nearly 60 different nations were gathered. When working with kids, Goldfield tries to capture the essence of their personalities.
