Humans of New York
6 years ago / in Baubles
Being here in Lausanne is a once in a lifetime opportunity & I don’t want to miss a second of it! Sometimes I get caught up in the moment & I just want to savour it for what it is. When I do take pictures though, I want to document everything I can! I always wonder though how a professional would capture each moment…I also wonder how many perfect photo opportunities I’ve missed, but what’s passed is passed & you can’t worry about what you can’t change.
One photographer who doesn’t seem to miss a thing is “Humans of New York”. I started following Brandon on Facebook after a friend liked one of his photos. After losing his job in Chicago, he decided to move to New York with the intention to take portraits of strangers on the street. I can’t say I was nothing less than intrigued. With every portrait he takes, Brandon writes a story. Quoted from the subject of the photo, whether it’s a recount of their life, or simply a single line of dialogue, both the photo & the writing work in tandem to produce a heart-warming piece of art. Photos can make me laugh, tear-up, or sometimes just confuse me. Whatever the feeling, each photo is a glimpse into someone else’s life, giving us a greater sense of who we are.
Here’s the latest “Humans of New York” photograph:

Just a girl sharing the baubles she loves & the bliss she experiences!
