|The People Involved
Children of China started with two dreams in two different cities at two ends of the world.
Alethea Gold, a renound fashion stylist, had a dream she was in China handing out books with lots of children running around her. Luca Zordan, known globally as the guru of children’s photography also had a dream that he was in China taking photos of hundreds of children.
After working together for many years, their love of children and passion for wanting to make a difference collided and together they created Children of China.
