Our photo project, Show & Tell, is wrapping up this month. The series, photographed and curated by Zivar Amrami, has featured children, ages 3-12, photographed with their favorite object. Shot in their homes, each child told us the “who,” “what,” and “why” stories behind their favorite things.

Here is the first installment of our two-part finale, featuring kids whose favorite objects were stuffed animals (and of course, the token doll):
