Ho Quang is a photography student based in Sydney, Australia. However, the focus of Ho’s concerns lies not in Australia, but  in Vietnam.

“Vietnam’s recent economic gains have been accompanied by rapid urbanisation, unemployment and and homelessness,” says Ho. “This has forced many families and children to migrate to the cities in search of a better life – often putting children at risk of abuse and exploitation.”

Feeling the need to do something, Huynh grabbed his camera and went overseas. Once in Vietnan, he started what would later be named the Untold Stories project.

“The aim of the project is to produce a series if images that portray a variety of children who are, in reality, living under difficult circuimstances (in other words, street children or from poor background), in scenes that represents their future dreams and aspirations – for example, to be able to go to school, to be a teacher, a doctor, a barber, etcetera.”

In other words, each image you see here represents the future dreams of respective child. For instance, the kid in the video and in the image below wants to study martial.

If you click the “read more” button you will find videos and images of children who wants be librarians, teachers, opera singers, painters, architects, etcetera

You can also find more information about the project at Ho’s website.
