Children Left Behind In Moldavia

Tiny Moldova is desperately poor. As many as a quarter of the 4.3 million people listed as living there actually work in Italy and other Western European countries sending pay home to support their families.  Andrea Diefenbach set about to depict the daily lives of the Moldovan children who were left behind either to fend for themselves or live with grandparents, as well as the parents who departed. Her project, “Country Without Parents,” resonates with love and sadness and is a captivating contrast between devotion and abandonment.
