I Want to Walk

Happy Families Inc., International Center of Photography and the “Artist Foundation” are presenting “Life in Motion”, a unique photo exhibit created to raise awareness towards disabled children, who are unable to live a fulfilled life due to their physical limitations. This project was organized as part of a greater program called “I Want to Walk”, which was created to help orphaned children obtain their dream of walking. For some children this meant physically being able to walk, while for others “walking” also meant being able to leave the orphanage and achieve their goals. Read more…
The objective of the photo exhibit is to draw the public’s attention to these children, whose opportunities are very limited. Our whole life is motion, however this word has a different meaning for every person. To some, motion – is a spiritual or professional development; to others – motion means traveling, but to some people – motion is a dream of simply being able to walk freely. The photos were taken by five students from ICP, who were lead by renowned photographer Ed Kashi, together with five students from Moscow’s Rodchenko School. In order to truly bond and understand these children, the students were brought to different orphanages and rehabilitation centers in Russia, where they spent a lot of time with these children, watching them play and interacting with them. The photographs, which depict these children in their daily motion – show the immense scope of unlimited capabilities that these children have. A limited number of 35 of each of the photographs taken, will be available for sale. Please contact us at 1-845-265-9272 to place your order. In addition, Ed Kashi has donated only one of each of the photos below for sale. These are from Ed’s private collection and are not part of the “Life In Motion” project. Show less text.
