STORIES

Photo Session

When a reporter’s love story hits a dead end, she turns to a Palestinian couple for answers.

Thank you Rayan, Samih, and Anna!

Two years after their engagement, Rayan and Samih got married and moved to a flat just outside the camp and they still work there as journalists. Our storyteller Anna and her boyfriend got engaged shortly after she moved to Iraq to be with him. Read these two stories and many more in Anna Lekas Miller’s book Love Across Borders.

Produced by John Fecile. Original score by Clay Xavier. Artwork by Teo Ducot. Translation by Naziha Baassiri. Voice acting by Snap producer John Fecile and his wife Sarah Fecile.

Make Me Beautiful

Esther asked 50 Photoshop artists to make her beautiful. Things got pretty ugly.

Thanks Esther for sharing this story!

Esther Honig’s photo project still gets re-published to this day. It’s appeared in books for English language learners. The University of Cambridge put it in a textbook chapter about beauty. Her photos have been printed and hung on the walls of the Museum of Tomorrow in Brazil and The National Science and Media Museum in the UK. Check out her TED talk about this project.

Esther is currently a producer at Storycorps, and has also produced two Snap episodes, “White Gold Fever” and “Map to the Disappeared.”

Produced by John Fecile. Original score by Dirk Schwartzhoff.s
