Denis’ story

Share

Denis, 34 – Pennsylvania/Uganda

When Denis left Uganda, the last thing he wanted was to be a stranger to his family. And good news…he isn’t. He still sees their smiles, swaps stories and offers advice, all from eight thousand miles away.

But getting everyone together for a family portrait? Well, that’s a pretty tall order. So we rang up an artist named John Clang and asked for his help. Not only did he help, he made the miles vanish with a video call and a projector. It’s The Impossible Family Portrait, made possible by Skype.
