Since his early days in Asia, living with Japanese and South Korean families in their homes in the 1970s, American photographer Tom Coyner has spent considerable time around Asian children.
Now retired in Seoul, the former executive continues to enjoy the company of children – and often photographs them – with their parents’ approval, naturally.
Asia Times presents a selection of Coyner’s images from around the region. Traveling from east to west, our journey starts in Japan and ends in India.
