Photographs are precious to us, they contain memories preserved in a frame. In these modern times, cellphones and computers contain most of the pictures we take. Unfortunately, not everyone have these privileges, not even everyone have physical photographs. Wilson and Vanessa (collectively known as wiisaa) went on a motorcycle trip along the Mongolian countryside, armed with a Fujifilm Instax and a stack of film, they did a nice thing photographing people they come across and giving them the pictures for keeps.

They also made this awesome video. You can see the happy faces of the people who, among some, have not seen themselves in photographs or haven’t had their pictures taken at all.

It feels nice to be able to bring joy to people, even in the simplest form. Good job to for this amazing project.


The Fuji Instax Mini 7S has simple exposure control, automatic built-in flash, and uses credit card-sized Fuji Instax Mini film. And you’re in luck, because this camera is now available in fresh white! Check it out with the rest of our Instant cameras here!
