Faces of the Danforth

By: Nick Brehmer, Alicia  Kolenda, and Katie Yantzi

Faces of the Danforth is a photography project inspired by Brandon Stanton’s “Humans of New York.” Much like its inspiration, Faces of the Danforth strives to feature members of a community and connect those people on a more human level. Walking up and down the streets of the city, you see so many unique people; you might be surprised to discover that you have similar experiences or that you are indeed vastly different. Regardless, we hope you find the visuals of the Faces of the Danforth posts to be as inspirational as we do.
