"If I Could Do Anything, I Would..." Project: Jhalak School, Baruipur, India

The "If I Could Do Anything" project is largely selfish on my part. In many of the countries I visit, most of the children do not receive any kind of emphasis on their dreams, hopes and personal aspirations. Many of the children are already designated to a certain life, a certain future. I like to give these children a voice, for a moment, to say and explain (through art) what they dream of for their future. I get very literal answers (i.e. doctor, teacher, etc.) to very imaginative ones (i.e. a bird, a grown up, to play all the day, etc.). Asking this question is one of my favorite experiences with the children. Please click on a picture to view the larger version.
