    Sad to compare!

  2. Rudy

    Awesome perspective.
    Made me think about my own place on earth in relation to others.
    I’m a very fortunate person and should be more content with what I have and I also need to share and give rather than improve what is already great in my own life.
    Thank you :)

    Very emotional message.

    We should be happy with what we have and try to help the unfortunate.

    All of these photos are focussed on materialism. I don’t get an insight if these children are happy or not. I grew up in utter poverty in late 20th century Western Europe. For me these photos are are lacking for in emotion or understanding of what poverty and wealth mean in different cultures and geopolitical locations.

    These photos just show contrasts in materialism meant to be viewed by a privaliged Western middle-upper class audience.
