Project Urban Development for Children in Lima
Specialism Photography

Big cities are often not built for children; they are build for adults. Adults with cars. This takes up a lot of space that could have another function; one that is more humane.

With their Urban95 program, The Bernard van Leer Foundation brings change; working together with cities to redevelop urban spaces focussing on safe spaces for young children.

With support from the Municipalidad de Lima, Beyond Borders Media photographed numerous of redeveloped spaced around the city. In all types of different neighbourhoods, we made photography of how these spaces are used by locals. As each demand for usage is different, the development of these spaces are as well; tailored to suit the community.
