Of all the material possessions we get attached to over the years, it's our childhood toys that end up in the loft for decades because parting with them is just too hard. Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti visited more than 50 countries to create portraits of children with their most prized belongings, and this exhibition tells the story of 21 kids from a wide range of backgrounds. Different tastes and economic statuses mean that the toys  vary hugely, but the subjects' common love of play shines through in every picture.
