Open Wide is a social documentary project covering 14 countries examining culture through the lens of children’s play- what do games and toys tell us about gender, resources, education and traditions? As we open wide the frame of our cameras we open the frame of our minds, to see beyond the expected, and celebrate the paradoxical nature of children’s play. Despite the environment children are constantly adapting, discovering, socializing, through play. Play is an example of what goes right in the world, naturally, all the time, everywhere. Play is a powerful muscle of resilience, and hope.
