Beautiful People of Los Angeles
Recently, I embarked on a loose project titled vaguely as Beautiful People of Los Angeles. I have no direct goal or motive, but to capture moments of people you usually would pay no mind to.
It sounds sort of fucked up, right? People you usually would pay no mind to. Well, it's a real thing. We (including myself) are so inherently into our moment, our place in time, our phones. It's fun to step out of bounds and photograph someone that typically wouldn't be photographed. Give them a smile, compliment them or make a joke with them and laugh together. Those 5 seconds you can spend on a person you've never met can brighten their entire day, yours included.
Or it can creep them out. Who cares!
I feel very fortunate to be from Los Angeles. There is an unimaginable amount of people and every single one of them has a story to tell. When you listen for a moment, it is then that the colors of the city begin to shine through.
