"If you had one story to share with the world, what would you say?"

That is the question we ask at Dear World, an interactive, award-winning portrait project that explores the subtle and powerful connections between students, faculty, and staff. Dear World was founded as a portrait project that unites people through pictures in their distinct message-on-skin style.

Our teams have visited college campuses around the world, from Oxford to Oregon and Paris to Princeton. Dear World has taken over 50,000 portraits from around the world and we found that these portraits often became the first line in a story that brings us closer together.

Our process began simply, to ask a person to share a message about something or to someone they love. By the end of the night you realize that through our stories, there's actually much more that brings us together than keeps us apart.
