Farm Kids by David Handley (10 photos)

Next time you’re feeling a little blue, take a look at this beautiful set of photos taken of kids in South Africa. (Just how infectious are their smiles?) UK-based photographer David Handley was commissioned by a magazine to photograph a fashion story there using local kids in a farm environment. In a single day of casting he found his incredible models. Handley describes them as “children from local townships, who were poor, incredibly polite and a joy to be around.” “One of my favourite moments was when we handed a girl a toy duck and she looked so proud of her gift. It was moments like this that made it all worthwhile.”

This delightful series won first place for Commercial/Fashion in the 2010 Sony World Photography Awards.
