In this short video
, David Alan Harvey walks across a muddy field and gives some prints to a young Cuban cowboy. David Alan Harvey says (for the camera) "40 million people will see this pictures in the magazine . I will not see the reaction of of any of them." The Cuban beams proudly and laughs although he probably does not know the difference between David Alan Harvey and me or what National Geographic magazine is.
Let us never underestimate the impact of giving prints to subjects, especially those who are remote. It often means the world to them and gives us such reward.
I know a lot of people in South Apopka who have prints of them that I shot pinned up on the wall. I feel good when someone tells me that I photographed them years ago, even if I don't remember them. Only a handful of Cubans have prints because I never know when I am going to be back where I have photographed before.
Try to make an effort to hand out prints to those we encounter and photograph. It really makes a difference to them.
