A Picture is Priceless

Help-Portrait is a way for photographers to give back to their communities by taking and printing portraits --for free-- for people who otherwise have little or no chance of ever having a professional portrait made for them. I was blessed to be able to assist at the Help Portrait event in Guijing Village, a migrant community in Shanghai where most of the residents are originally from Anhui province, a rural area to the west of Shanghai, where the annual per capita income is $3,086 USD. The event had registered 110 families, by the end of the day we had taken and printed portraits for 214 families.
