Photo Essay: “My People”

For this project, I decided to walk outside, look around and shoot whatever inspires me. The reason why I think that ALL of the pictures below belong under a post titled “My People”, is because they reflect something that is within me. It can be an emotion, a state of mind, a situation or even a belief. It is something that makes them human, or that represents what being human is. Also, I decided to refrain from taking pictures of people I know. I tried to look for things that I believe in and that represent “My People”, but I wanted to show them by taking pictures of people I don’t know. I did this to show that everybody has these emotions and bonds, that they are an internal part of us.

    Tony, these pictures are great. Great framing and composition, awesome (and occasionally hilarious; cat on his head?) content. A very thoughtful reflection on decision-making, a great lesson for other civilian photographers. Great work on this and everything this semester.
