Title: Breaking Through

These photographs show how we can break through social barriers by asking strangers simple questions about their lives. I was continuously surprised by how honest people were and how quickly they shared intimate details with me when I approached them on the street. This project has allowed me to learn about the complex lives of others, helped to develop my thinking, and has altered my worldview.
