Phodographer Leah Hudson near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, April 2009
The thrill of posing for their first picture is followed by actually seeing the printing process. The primary colors are added to the photo paper during each pass through the printer. Here in Cite Soleil a local volunteer helped man the printer as the children gathered to watched in amazement. It’s simple to use and full color 4×6 photos were created in less than a minute! However, nothing topped their delight when they were presented with the finished photo of themselves.
Best Foto of the Week!
