If anyone's interested, here's a little piece I put together showing some street life in São Paulo. It's about two-and-a-half minutes long.

Thank you, Jean-Pierre, for this information. I apologize for my late reaction. I am doing fieldwork at the moment on folk festivals of Moors and Christians, in Beneixama (Alicante-Spain), and I can't check my email as often as I would like to. I will try to keep in touch, however, and appreciate your input.

The following new journal on images of children and conceptions of childhood might be of interest to you.

Red Feather is an online, international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for scholars and professionals to interrogate representations of children in film, television, Cyberspace, video gaming or any other visual medium where the image of the child is featured.

Red Feather facilitates an international dialogue among scholars and professionals through vigorous discussion of the intersections between the child image and the conception of childhood, children's material culture, children and politics, the child body, and any other conceptions of the child within local, national, and global contexts. The journal invites
critical and/or theoretical examination of the child image to further our understanding of the consumption, circulation, and representation of the child throughout the world's visual mediums. Some sample topics include, but are certainly not limited to: studies of images of children of color; child as commodity; images of children in Africa, Asia, Middle East, South
America, etc.; political uses of the child image; children in film; children in advertising; visual adaptations of children's literary works; child welfare images; children and war; or any other critical examination of the child image in a variety of visual mediums.

Red Feather is to be published twice a year, in February and September, Deadline for submissions for the first issue is December 15th 2009.
