The City of Children is an extensive document of a government-run housing program for runaways and at-risk teens, located in Hungary. The program was founded in the 1950s, when the Hungarian social welfare system emphasized collective solutions to private problems. New York based photographer Monika Merva has worked on this documentary project for over 8 years. Her book The City of Children was published by Kehrer Verlag Heidelberg in 2010.
