Phodographer Samm Coffin in Kayamandi, Cape Town area of South Africa, March 2010
Samm is an enthusiastic supporter and volunteer phodographer for Dog Meets World. She’s spending her semester abroad at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. Busy as she is, Samm finds time to help out at an afterschool program in a nearby township and has taken tons of pictures for the DMW project. These girls demonstrated that one of the best things about having a personal photo is showing it to your friends. Wouldn’t you agree? Thanks Samm.
Best Foto of the Week!
