I want to introduce you to my social project called “Sharejoy.” It is an innovative, non-commercial augmented reality project dedicated to supporting children undergoing cancer treatment.

The team of this project created a free “Sharejoy AR” augmented reality app which is designed to work with digital photos, storybook, postcards, and printed pictures. The app contains 10 interactive animated and joyful dog characters―the participants of the “Sharejoy” project.

Although I am a portraiture photographer and work with people, for this project, I chose dogs as my main models. My goal was to enhance children’s emotional well-being with a dose of positive emotions elicited by “Sharejoy’s” creations, so funny dog pictures were the best decision.

My goal as a photographer and the leading person of this social project is to share the joy with every participant of the “Sharejoy” project because I believe that recovery starts with positive thinking and a vivacious mood.

You can try this app by installing it (Android or Apple) and pointing your device at the dogs’ pictures below.

Rejoice and share the joy with everyone!

Here are a few shorts from behind the scenes of the photoshoot

These pictures were first exhibited at a hospital for children with cancer


The app lets you interact with the dogs on the screen of your device


You can interact with the dogs by touching and stroking them and seeing their unique reactions

Dogs belong to different dog breeds, so kids can learn about their specific behavior and features

Each dog has five animations

You can also play a mini puzzle game assembling dogs’ pictures for the best timed result

It was full of laughter and positive emotions


Along with the exhibited pictures, we also printed postcards and published books for children with the dogs of the project

By purchasing interactive books and postcards, everyone can give a smile to beloved ones and support seriously ill children in Lithuania
