Seeking Human Kindness
Street photography: On a street corner in Boston, the photo I was least expecting to take on a beautiful, sunny day became the one that impacted me the most. Normally, in street photography, it's the the fact that your subjects are usually unaware that you are photographing them that gives them their candid character. That's not the case with this one. This man's simple sign inspired me. After showing him a little human kindness, I also wanted to show him dignity and respect, so I asked him first if it was okay to take his photo before taking it. "Thank you for asking," he said, and he held up his sign for me.
