Daily Foto: The Magic Printer mesmerizes in Brazil

Phodographer John Carr in Buenos Aires, Brazil, Dec. 2009

John ended his months long backpacking trip around South America by volunteering in a kindergarten for children in one of the poorest villas in Buenos Aires: Los Eucalypts, Suarez. The kindergarten, Jardin Traversuras, is run by donated money and is down to the hard work of a local woman, Lorena, who spends every day with the children before going to work. The children are all aged 3-5 and would otherwise be playing in the streets; they are all absolutely amazing. He took his camera and printer into the kindergarten and spent two hours taking and printing pictures – much to their delight and the gratitude of Lorena.

John says he became a “phoDOGrpaher” because he was “Keen to give something back, spread joy and meet people in the places I travel.”
