NYChildren Photography Exhibition

NYChildren Banner

For his NYChildren project, Danny Goldfield is photographing a child from every country on earth currently living in New York City. So far, children from 171 countries are part of this amazing series and quest. 

“From Goldfield’s many images, a single, rich, complex – and beautiful – portrait emerges.

— LIFE magazine cover story

We live in a world with far too much fear and misunderstanding. This exhibition is about finding the courage to meet and get to know neighbors to build trust and friendship.

To create NYChildren, Danny and a group of volunteers engage a network of immigrant-service providers, clergy, educators, business people, politicians, journalists, artists, students and other neighbors. We are optimistic that you and others in our city, country and world will support this exhibition project. Let’s create a physical space that reminds us to be in touch with something greater than ourselves, the unity in community and love of neighbors.

When you enter Park51 and walk into the exhibition, you will be surrounded by a salon-style presentation of over 160 beautiful color portraits of children. The photographs reveal a moving spectrum of emotions that we all feel. Along with the experience of identifying with the children photographed, you will find a text panel with the list of the remaining countries and project criteria. This is an active and hopeful exhibit that gives voice to the future.
