Romano, U. Roberto
Bhubaneswar, the capital city of the state of Orissa, India, is home to thousands of street children who roam the city in search of food and some kind of livelihood. These children live by their wits, cleaning the train coaches, scavenging the tracks, begging for food and money, eating leftover scraps and vending petty wares. Often they ride the trains for days.
Over two hundred digital images and thirty-four framed photographic prints were donated by Mr. Romano in 2008/2009. Additional materials were transferred in 2011-2012 and are on deposit.
