For Chasing the Dream, photographs were made by Diego Goldberg and texts written by Roberto Guareschi profiling eight young people from around the world, each highlighted as grappling with issues related to one aspect of the Millennium Development Goals. The two Argentines also conducted short workshops for the youth in the eight places they visited, asking them to photograph what they liked or did not like; the resulting imagery and text then constituted the other major section of the exhibition and website created by PixelPress for the UN. The idea was then to have the spouses of the leaders of more than a hundred countries in attendance for the September 2005 Millennium Summit visit the exhibition, guided by Nan Annan (UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s wife). Unfortunately, due to the need for extra temporary offices, the exhibition space was unavailable during the three-day summit.
