40 Of The Most Amazing Humans Encountered On The Streets By The ‘Humans Of’ Movement Worldwide

There might be hundreds of photographers meeting different people on the streets in different parts of the world uploading their photos with their stories onto Facebook or their blogs right now. I have been following several of them, so let me share some of the most interesting posts of some of the most powerful “Humans of” projects. Of course I have to mention the one and only “Brandon Stanton” who started uploading his first photos of humans to his Facebook page “Humans of New York.” Soon afterwards, however, many photographers around the globe started to upload their pictures representing the huge variety of different people around the whole globe. This is just a small selection of the whole conglomerate of photos uploaded daily on many different locations. Below each picture, you can find the source of these photographs and follow these amazing blogs via Facebook yourself! It’s an amazing experience to see different people worldwide and an amazing proof that we all have to unite and make this planet a better place for all!

"If people don’t start paying closer attention, we’re going to be living in a corporate fascist state in no time. We’re paying $3.50 for a cup of coffee. You know how much a POUND of coffee beans costs? $3.50. But nobody knows that. Cause nobody’s paying attention."

Humans of Berlin

"When I was a child, my grandma used to take me picking herbs. And afterwards we went to the morgue so she could see who died lately. I think that's why I still have a very relaxed relationship to death. Although it's always sad when a loved one passes away, no matter whether it's a partner or a rat. Beautiful animals by the way."

"I am divorced and I have a daughter who is a big girl now. I got tired of ordinary life, of not having the ability to really choose anything. I am married with the street now. I want to choose to get dirty, to dive into fountains and then get dirty again. I want to walk barefoot, to sleep in churches, on bridges, under bridges, beneath the statues. I want to play music, hangout with my friends and my dog. People think I'm a druggie but - you see? - there are no holes in my arms."

Humans of Amsterdam

''As a child I grew up reading books like Robinson Crusoe and the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I always felt a strong desire to live like an explorer. After high school I worked a 9 to 5 job. Months passed by and slowly I felt my dreams drifting away from me. One day I decided to change my life for good. I packed my stuff and left everything behind to be an adventurer. I only carry a sleeping bag and some clothing in my backpack and I go wherever the wind takes me. ''

You have 25 dogs? how can you feed so many?

"At the beginning there was one that came behind me where I sell food. I decided to give it some food and many others came too. It's hard to take care of all of them because they often fight with each other... Many of the dogs that come to me arrive hurt and they need the help of some vet who wants to do it by sheer will and love. The money I get is almost not enough for the month, but what can we do? I love them... and you need to take care of animals"

"It's easier to be single what. Otherwise get married got problems, husband gamble, cheat, go find china woman, drive you crazy. This way very easy. See this cat - his name Bobby. Some people in the market there think I'm crazy, got disease, that's why they say I got no husband and play with cats all the time. But animals don't see that. You treat them right, give them food, they be nice to you too."

"What do you love about Papua New Guinea?"

"My culture. Its Vibrant. Its full of life."

"What was your most memorable experience in Papua New Guinea?"

"When I was a really young girl in my Dad's village, I went swimming in the Sepik River not knowing there were crocodiles in there. Against my dad's advice, I jumped into the river and the currents nearly drifted me away."

"How did you come out of the river?"

"I actually clung onto a canoe! This is the first time I'm sharing this story! My Dad doesn't even know."

“I’m from out of town. I am here paying a visit to my children and grandchildren. We talk on the phone all the time but it is more fulfilling seeing them and talking with them live, and in person.“

Humans of Karachi

"Carefully made out the words mumbled from his lips "Jabhi koi acha kaam karo beta bus khamoshi se karna. Woh jaante hain. Beshaq, Woh jaanta hai."

(Translation: Whenever you do good, do it quietly (without any fanfare). No doubt God knows (of your good deeds)- He knows all.)

“I have been volunteering at Cheonggyecheon introducing Korean history to tourists since 2006, the year I retired from my job”

“Why did you you decide to start volunteering?”

“In my old age I wanted to do something that had real meaning to it.”

Humans of Toronto

"I think the best way to make a friend is through wandering-seeing new parts of your city previously unknown, with friends not yet familiar, fueled with the comforts of coffees and cigarettes.

Our friendship has now blossomed through all of our shared adventures, and blooming with the prospect of future journeys to be held side by side."
