1978 Child Laborers, Where Are They Now?

I totally remember this Benetton ad showing tiny kids in Bogota working in a brickyard. But I did not know that the photographer, Jean-Pierre Laffont, had not shot it for Benetton. It was a few years earlier, for the International Year of The Child, and Laffont won a World Press Photo award for it.

The kids in this photo, then, would be about 40 now, assuming they're not dead. [images via ufl.edu, worldpressphoto, respectively]
