A project inspired by the more famous, Humans of New York, Humans of Leeds looks at the lives, stories and aesthetics of the people who live in Leeds.

This photographer takes the time to talk and get to know his subject as well as simply taking their photograph and then pairs a quote from them with the photograph so the viewer can almost get to know the subject through his work.

He takes ordinary people, who you would see walking all around you in the street and shows them for the multi-layered, complicated people that they are that you wouldn’t be able to determine from just walking past them in the street and you may not even take note of these people as you are walking through Leeds.

The photographer’s way of showing the extraordinary in the ordinary is really very beautiful and inspiring and it’s something I’d like to look at in terms of the city as a whole, rather than just it’s people.
