Dog Meets World is about human dignity and the power of one. The intention is that the photograph fulfills a basic human need for acknowledgment and recognition. Kids of the world light up our future.

Phodographer Carolyn Lane in Jubba, Jordan January 2010

Double the experience when traveling! While in Jordan for a GAP Adventures trip, I brought along Foto and the printer. Taking and immediately printing out pictures allowed another level of interaction with local Jordanians. Everyone can practice this most basic form of giving back or voluntourism…sharing through the power of photography! I was able to introduce the project to our entire travel group and 2 members indicated they will be taking Dog Meets World on their next trip.

This young school girl in northern Jordan is thrilled that foreign visitors took the time to photograph her and then handed her a tangible image to keep as permanent affirmation. Photography is something to which everyone can relate, and using photos as a medium for understanding and connection is a powerful platform. Photo diplomacy is the new way to interact with local cultures for everyone. Become a phodographer.

Petra Jordan has been designated one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Petra among the ruins of ancient civilization dating from the first century, the carved rock facade make it seem as if time has stood still for thousands of years. These young Bedouin girls posed with Foto the dog and the modern camera captured the moment making this time stand still too. Sharing photography is truly sharing and preserving moments in time.
