photographer manuel alvarez diestro has driven thousands of kilometers along the middle east, europe, asia and north america to capture images of various playgrounds in different contexts through out the world. the collection gives insight to the local urban planning and architecture used to entertain children, with some found in the city centers and other times in the most unexpected places.
