When asked "Why did you want to take my photo"
"Simply being yourself in this moment without any effort at all, you're just being you, and that's beautiful."
In The World Around me from Cleveland Vol. 25, photographer Frank Lanza offers his insights on experiencing authenticity though making photos of people. He proposes how not just stories, sights, and sounds are conveyed through photos, but also feelings and how those feeling can help us better understand and connect to the world around us.
This was "Presentation of the Day" on Thursday, August 20th.
