"If you had one story to share with the world, what would it be?" This is the question that Dear World, an interactive, award-winning portrait project, asks its participants. Dear World was founded as a portrait project that unites people through pictures in their distinct message-on-skin style. Dear World asks every individual to share a story about a meaningful part of their life as a window into the people around us. Join Dear World to experience this artistic and powerful look into the stories we hold individually and share collectively.
