Photographer Robert X Fogarty is helping people share a piece of their story, while also showing their heart. Dear World began as a way to share and show love for New Orleans in 2009. Since that time, it has expanded to telling stories from specific events around the world, as well as providing an outlet for people to express what’s on their heart. As seen in the photographs, sometimes the smallest piece of our lives might be able to touch many.
