New Phodographer Amy Speckman in Bajo Tejares, Costa Rica, July 2009

With a brand new camera in tow, Amy Speckman resonated immediately with DMW…she said “Everyone on the trip was so touched at how much joy the pictures brought! I would never have imagined the impact it would have on them and on me! Taking their pictures gave me an opportunity to talk to them for a moment, ask them their name and their age and a few other personal questions while I was setting up each shot. I feel like I have 400 friends in this village now!” What a perfect definition of photo diplomacy.
