The Street Child World Cup Photo Exhibit is a compelling collection of 12 photos displaying the action of the Street Child World Cup 2014 and the emotions of its participants.

The Street Child World Cup is a global movement for street children to receive the protection and opportunities that all children are entitled to. In April 2014 over 230 former street children from 19 countries joined the Street Child World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for a football tournament, festival of arts and a participatory conference for children’s rights. These children stand united for the rights of street children across the world. I AM SOMEBODY is the global campaign that is led by the children themselves.

Robin Utrecht knows how to photograph his subjects in a creative, almost abstract style. Up until now, he has won 28 prizes in different categories of the annual ‘Zilveren Camera’ competition for Dutch photojournalism and several international awards. Marco Hofsté was educated at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. He has several nominations and awards to his name in the ‘Zilveren Camera’ competition and he won the GPD press award. Marco and Robin have been good friends and colleagues from the beginning of their careers.
