All About Photo is pleased to present 'Child Labour' by Hana Peskova

Part of the exclusive online showroom developed by All About Photo, this exhibition is on view for the month of April 2024 and includes twenty photographs from the series ‘Child Labour’

Child Labour

The collection has been gradually forming since 2018, when I first visited Bangladesh and saw child labour with my own eyes. Child labour is common worldwide, with an estimated 170 million children working across our planet, most notably in Asia. This isn't just about occasional help for parents, but in some countries, it's about consistent, everyday, often hard work.

Child labour is defined as work that deprives children of their childhood, potential, and dignity, and that is harmful to their physical and mental development. The sight of hard-working children who are proud to help their parents is often pitiful. Instead of play, they only know hard toil; instead of attending school, they have working hours. They can still play and laugh, but more often, sadness is seen in their eyes.

In this collection, I wanted to show the work of children from various perspectives, not just the hard labour, but also the common work, which is also an integral part of their childhood world. Some forms of work may at first glance be mistaken for begging or acrobatics, but the children have no choice, contributing significantly to the family budget.

The photographs are from Asia - Bangladesh, India, Kyrgyzstan, and Iran. Finally, it's worth mentioning that June 12 is World Day Against Child Labour.

Artist ( Description ): 

Hana Peskova - passionate self-taught photographer whose journey began at the renowned Skola Kreativni Fotografie in Prague. In 2021, she was honored with the prestigious International Title of Excellence FIAP (EFIAP) by the FIAP (Artiste de la Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique), a testament to her artistic prowess and dedication to the craft.

Nestled in the picturesque town of Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic, she has turned the globe into her canvas, capturing the ephemeral beauty and indescribable energy of moments and people. Her work transcends the mere act of memory preservation to unveil the essence of life itself, through the eye of her camera. As a freelance photographer, her lens has intimately explored the vibrancy of street and documentary photography for years. With a focus on the tapestry of social life, her work dives deep into the heart of ordinary life, cultural narratives, and contemporary issues. She possesses a unique attraction to the narratives of old, the allure of isolated places, and the stories of people living beyond the limelight.

Her photography is not just a window to the world but an invitation to view it through her unique perspective. Capturing not only the bustling life on the streets and the untouched facets of nature, she also ventures into the realm of creative photography. Each frame is a story, a whisper of the past or a shout of the present, always aiming to evoke emotion and provoke thought.
