all over the world in NY

Has anyone seen this project? It is called NYChildren and is a picture of one child from every nation on the earth living in NY city (including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Manhattan and Queens). The photographer is Danny Goldfield , and he is amazing....he takes candid shots of these kids and their raw beauty is truly captured.
What impressed me is that he lets the kids do what they are doing, he captures kid moments, and not kids doing what an adult thinks they should do for a photo shoot. The ones that I enjoyed the most are the ones of these international kids throwing fits, or really not looking happy about being payed that much attention to...they are just really good photos, of really real kids. They have taken pictures of 151 countries since their beginnings in 2004 and are searching for the rest. I can't wait to see what they come up with. Check it out!
