X is for Xtremely Powerful Photos That Capture The Human Experience

Never has the saying “a picture paints a thousand words” been so true as with the collection of photos I’d like to share with you today (I wish they were my photos, but they’re not).

Each photo is so full of emotion – some are big and explosive, some are small, intimate moments captured on film. Collected together these photos take us through the breadth of human emotions and experience, and it’s a touching journey to go through them all.

Here are a few of my favourites and you can go through the whole collection here

    • They really are, it really shows how much a photo can capture, how much it can tell us about people and their situation. Always makes me think that’s what we need to try and capture when writing a scene. No pressure! 😉
