Photo Exhibition - Street Dreams in Delhi

Intelligent and incisive portraits of the city's street children

Street Dreams, a photo exhibition by Vicky Roy on the issue of child rights, was held at Experimental Art Gallery, India Habitat Centre in March, 2007.

Vicky Roy, formerly a Delhi street kid and a victim of child abuse, was rehabilitated by Salaam Balak Trust, which helped him to become a professional photographer.
