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 wiissaa.com for this amazing project.
