I have been so inspired by the book ‘Humans of New York’. It is true, as the author Brandon Stanton writes, “we often spend more time not liking people than we do finding the beauty and uniqueness of each person”. I am very fascinated by all kinds of people. Something about seeing all the variety of portraits and what people have to say in Brandon’s book just reminds me of the human condition that we all have in common. Although very different yet subject to many of the same things…birth…life expression…aging…and passing.
Humans are a powerful expression of creativity and deep soul connections. I decided to go to “The Mall” and photograph and engage the sub culture there. Thanks again to all of you who have taken the time to talk with me and for letting me take your picture. It has been exciting to talk with everyone.
