Originally titled “The People We Ignore”, Digital Storytyler started an an answer to the question, “What would happen if we stopped and listened?” What stories might people tell? My theory was that they would show us the common threads we all wear as humans. We apply so many labels and stereotypes onto people within seconds of seeing them. The connections we are missing out on in doing so are exactly the connections I aim to make. And I have. Portrait after portrait, people have offered their hearts and their histories up to share and the results have been nothing short of inspiring.
