Vanessa Hollander and Wilson Philippe, young teenage photographers, set out on a ten day motorcycle trip, covering Mongolia. Along the way they handed out Polaroid pictures to the Natives, showing many of them their own faces for the first time..ever.
“It was a really great and humbling experience and showed us how much just one photograph can mean to people who have never had one of themselves. Although many people claim they want to escape this mess of technology in more developed countries, we often tend to take the beauty of some technology, such as photography, for granted.“
What a great idea to video tape their reactions. You can’t help but smile along with them.
