The Friendliest People On Earth: Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas (VegasAnonymous photojournalism street photography)

In college, I was planning to be a writer. And I was planning to be a photographer.

Unfortunately, my first photo professor said we had to buy film. I was too broke to buy any. I had just enough money every day to eat a can of tuna.

One can.

So I dropped photography, and I became a writer.

But for years, I’ve been taking pictures at news events and doing street photography.

So now, here is the first gallery of picture work.

I prefer taking photos of people. I take public photos, not just because public photos are a legally protected form of speech, but also because public areas are where the biggest life goes on.

I love life.

I love people.

I love strangers, situations, and stories.

So here I present to you this pre-apocalypse project, a decade-in-the-making.

It’s a celebration of the people of Las Vegas.

I mock no one. I admire them for doing what they want to do with their lives. I admire their heart, courage, and joie de vivre.

The only thing I didn’t create was the music. I curated it from Epidemic Sound:
