I could not end this book without acknowledging
how very lucky I have been to travel around the
world and to meet the photogenic subjects on the
preceding pages.
Unfortunately, some of our fellow human beings
are not born as photogenic.
Thats where The Smile Train, the worlds leading
cleft charity, comes in. Through a simple opera-
tion, a childs appearance can be magically trans-
formed, bringing a smile to her face and to all of
those around her.
To see how you can help to bring a smile to a
childs face, please check out The Smile Train at
