A PHOTO DOCUMENTARY SERIES ON THE BEAUTY OF HUMANITY
It’s not easy to walk up to a complete stranger, camera in hand, and ask to take a photo. At the beginning, it felt awkward… and scary. But, most of the time, a simple hello and a smile meets another genuine smile. Usually people agree to photos, and we start chatting. Sometimes it’s a no, and we still chat. I am learning so much about people in my own city, on my travels, and (most surprisingly) about myself.
