Toy Stories

Toy Stories is the in-progress-project by the Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti

"Who doesn’t remember a favorite childhood toy? All kids have one. Rich or poor, all children have a chosen one, one they love the most. How can I forget that doll with a broken eye? It was ugly but had no rivals. And it was my favorite, no doubt. Gabriele Galimberti, during his tour around the world, explores this phenomenon with gentle irony and loving attention. The idea starting by chance while photographing a young Italian girl from Tuscany. Now it has become a photographic series that is mapping children’s worlds in an almost obsessive way. The toy stories of our times". Arianna Rinaldo
