I Show The Contrast Between The Two Worlds That Our Children Currently Live In By Combining Photos (29 Pics)

 Hello everyone. I am Uğur Gallenkuş, an Istanbul-based digital artist. I create collages juxtaposing two images including the work of some of today’s most intrepid photojournalists.

By contrasting images of different realities, I aim to show a range of intensely relevant issues affecting today’s children: from war to poverty, hunger, child trafficking, child labor, child soldiers, immigration, healthcare, and education. Violation of basic children's rights compelled me to publish this book that shows two sides of humanity that we have collectively created.

One question we all at some point ask, especially when we understand what it means to be a parent, is this: What legacy are we leaving the children of the world?

The book takes the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children, enforced since 1990, as its foundation, aiming through these 50 collages to convey the essential rights each child should have, regardless of their circumstances or geography. Each collage represents one of the U.N.-determined rights of children and is accompanied by statistics indicating the pressing realities putting children in danger worldwide.

With this book, I hope to inspire a shift in the consciousness of adults, inviting us all to leave our greed and egos behind and make the world a better place for today’s children.

This book is dedicated to all children in the world: poor or rich, in developed countries or undeveloped countries, educated or uneducated, hungry or obese, or dead or living.

This book is a CALL TO ACTION!
