Taylor Jones
Founder, Dearphotograph.com

Taylor Jones, was inspired to start Dearphotograph.com as he flipped through old family photos at his parents’ kitchen table. The twenty-one-year-old came across one of his brother sitting at the same table and lifted it up to match the lines of the photo to what he saw in front of him, then snapped a picture of the picture. In a moment, the idea for Dearphotograph.com was born. Jones took a few more Dear Photographs and posted them on a website, asking people to submit their own, and in six short weeks, millions of people had visited, hundreds of photographs had been submitted, and Jones had created an Internet phenomenon that had captured the world’s attention.
