EVERYDAY PEOPLE

GOOD DAY FROM A SUNNY SOUTH AFRICA.

FIRSTLY I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND MY WARMEST REGARDS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR LOVE THAT YOU’VE CONTINUOUSLY SHOWN ME. I HUMBLY APPRECIATE IT. WITH THAT OUT OF THE WAY.
FOR THE NEXT FEW SECONDS I WANT YOU TO THINK OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT YOU PASS ON A DAILY BASIS. NOW PONDER UPON THIS: WHO ARE THEY? WHAT STORY DO THEY HAVE TO TELL? WHAT ARE SOME OF THE LESSONS THEY’VE LEARNED?

HERE’S MY ANSWER.

IN THE YEAR 2014 I COMPLETED A PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE AND DURING THOSE FEW MONTHS I WAS TASKED WITH AN ASSIGNMENT WHICH OPENED MY EYES. MY PHOTOGRAPHY FACILITATOR GAVE ME AN ASSIGNMENT WHICH COMPRISED OF ME PHOTOGRAPHING EVERYDAY PEOPLE THAT WE OFTEN TAKE NO NOTICE OF. PEOPLE THAT WE OFTEN REFER TO AS “OUTCASTS”. LIKE THE MAN WHO SLEEPS ON THE CORNER, THE WOMAN WHO WALKS AROUND WITH THE WORLD ON HER SHOULDERS OR EVEN THAT LITTLE BOY WHO RUNS DOWN THE STREET THE WHOLE DAY WITHOUT A CARE IN THE WORLD.

ALLOW ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SOME OF THESE PEOPLE, WHO THROUGH THEIR JOURNEY, INSPIRED MY JOURNEY.
