Daily Foto: “Dog photos” in big demand in Uganda!

Oct 4, 2010   //   Foto's Blog, Uganda  //  Comments Off on Daily Foto: “Dog photos” in big demand in Uganda!



Phodographer Marti Johnson in Gulu District Northern Uganda May 2010

Marti is heading back to the USA after 10 months in Uganda. About this photo she said “It’s rare that the camera reaches the children in Gulu district, Northern Uganda. However, Dog Meets World provided the opportunity for children to have positive portraits taken and to receive copies of the images. For most, it is the only photo of themselves that they own. News of the “dog photos” spread quickly throughout the village and long lines formed. Around the world, millions of other children are waiting for the opportunity. Become a phodographer and give a photograph to one of these children.”

Phodographer Marti Johnson in Kampala, Uganda January 2010

Marti, a recent college grad currently lives and works within St. Mary Kevin Orphanage, a facility home to over 150 orphans. Her job is to coordinate our child sponsorship program which provides for the basic needs to the children. Marti’s passion for photography led her to develop Project Perspective, a separate program to teach photography to the children in order to provide the world with a new perspective of African youth (Project Perspective).

These are some of her Primary Six students. To teach them about Dog Meets World she took and printed their pictures. She asked the kids in her photo class about owning pictures. For a majority, these were the first images of themselves that they have ever owned! The students are excited to share DMW with other children as student phodographers.
