Empathy Through My Lens


These pieces attempt to show the essence of human emotion. In my work, I try to capture humankind and who they are in their truest moments. This piece shows the theme empathy by displaying how people portray different kinds of emotion. Curiosity, happiness, sadness, and contentment are all shown throughout these photographs. These photographs show who my best friend is, inside and out. Human beings use the emotions they possess to form relationships with those around them. People use emotions to help others through times of trial. People use emotions to laugh together. People cry together. They scream together. Humans are more than mere muscles, skin, and bones, we are big balls of emotions and feelings, and one greatly enhances their life when they use the emotions to relate to others.
