Celebrating and Smiling in South Africa

Nelson Mandela turned 92 years old on July 18th. His life is committed to creating peace among all peoples. These pictures were taken in South Africa, printed out on-the-spot with a compact portable printer and distributed....often the first photograph the recipient had ever received. A photograph says I see you....you count...you matter. Sharing a picture is a simple way to bring people of different backgrounds, cultures, races together through the power of personal photography. We inherently know the value as we take photographs almost constantly in our own lives. How many pictures do you have of yourself, your child, your friends?
