Nifty. Reminds me of that year in college when we had an extra room in the house and kept a backdrop, lights, and tripod set up at all times. I got a lot of nice portraits that year. O for an extra room....

Really neat! I thought what the photographer in Chicago said about it taking a few generations in the US for the quinseanera girls to smile was interesting. The photos from India seemed particularly sad for some reason.

Jesus H. Christ in a handbasket. Am I wrong in thinking that the U.S.'s submission is the absolute shlockiest of them all? And that's taking into account the tacky India backdrops and the Lebanese kids with the AK-47's.

Conversely, the Chinese portraits were very nice, and I loved Israel's "Jew Chicks with Guns" theme. Awesome!

Funny and sad and poignant and touching. Kind of a 'found' Family of Man, isn't it?

Oh, a sleeping drunkard
Up in Central Park,
And a lion-hunter
In the jungle dark,
And a Chinese dentist,
And a British queen—
All fit together
In the same machine.
Nice, nice, very nice;
Nice, nice, very nice;
Nice, nice, very nice—
So many different people
In the same device.
