Glance.

Photographing strangers is no easy task. The boundaries are crossed, vulnerability is palpable both in front of the lens and behind it.

…And yet, connecting with a stranger is a mutual act of human need. Today we choose to bestow our connections to those we cross on the digital realms before those we cross on the streets.

“We The Peopls” is an ongoing Photographic journey attempting to cast aside our inhibitions. Attempting to open a dialogue with wonderful strangers that time after time remind us of our similarities with the power of a glance.

A hello goes a long way.

We The Peopls

Preamble to the United States Constitution and the slang word “Peopls” (a friend), come together in this project to demystify that very sentence —Who are WE?

The truth is everyone deserves to be center stage at least once.

Sometimes it’s a conversation, sometimes it’s a look, an acknowledgement
—Friend not Foe.

That’s all it takes to meet a stranger, photograph a human not close to you, yet very familiar.
