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!

Humans of New York

"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."

Humans of Rome

"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."

''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. ''

Humans of Bolivia

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"
