Phodographers Melissa Waksman and Michael Fox in Mangueira, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil March 2010
ATTENTION ALL COLLEGE STUDENTS planning to study abroad or take alternate breaks in areas of need around the globe. Like these students doing a service project in Brazil, just bring along Foto and a printer to add a new interactive dimension to your experiences.
Giving children the simple gift of a single photograph was priceless. The love, the laughter and the instant happiness is something you must experience in order to understand what it means to really study your abroad surrounding.
Best Foto of the Week!
