A pediatrician travels the world

The photographer and paediatrician Calvin Chen travels in the world and he captures moments of children.


When asked how he approaches children in new places, most of them part of the developing world, Chen gives an answer that is both simple and profound: “One of the most refreshing aspects of my travels is how open the people are.”


Chen has met children whose safety and health is sadly not guaranteed based solely on the circumstances of where and when they were born, but they’ve taught him something about happiness. His photographs aren’ t about life-changing events so much as they are about the fleeting bursts of delight and wonder that happen in between.
