25 Jahre UN-Kinderrechtskonvention
25 Years UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

The 25th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a good reason to put the topic emphatically into the public focus. UNICEF Germany and GEO – with the support of 45 of the world’s best photographers and Edition Lammerhuber – do exactly that in this joint project. In 35 photographic reports from 15 years, a selection of particularly striking pictures from the UNICEF Photo of the Year competition forms a fervent appeal to respect the rights of the child and to guarantee every girl and boy in the world a childhood in dignity. The volume is edited by Jürgen Heraeus, the Chairman of the German Committee of UNICEF, and Peter-Matthias Gaede, long-serving Editor-in-Chief of GEO. We the Children draws attention to the suffering and hardships, but also to the wishes and dreams of today’s children. We the Children is a book full of hope for a child-oriented world.

The photographers:
GMB Akash, Don Bartletti, Daniel Berehulak, Marcus Bleasdale, Laura Boushnak, Renée C. Byer, Mary F. Calvert, Matías Costa, William Daniels, Chris de Bode, Andrea Diefenbach, Stefan Falke, Hossein Fatemi, Deanne Fitzmaurice, Shiho Fukada, Mariella Furrer, David John Gillanders, Niclas Hammarström, Robin Hammond, Milan Jaroš, Shannon Jensen, Ed Kashi, Younes Khani, Yuri Kozyrev, Thomas Lekfeldt, Sara Naomi Lewkowicz, Mauricio Lima, Kai Löffelbein, José Manuel López, Alex Masi, Fernando Moleres, Wolfgang Müller, Mads Nissen, Shehzad Noorani, Finbarr O’Reilly, Alessio Romenzi, Majid Saeedi, Alice Smeets, Hartmut Schwarzbach, Stephanie Sinclair, Jacob Aue Sobol, Mugur Vărzariu, Felicia Webb, Gordon Welters, Patricia Willocq
