About Humans of San Antonio:
Humans of San Antonio is part of the Global Humans Project, a network of major cities around the world dedicated to capturing a glimpse into the lives of everyday citizens. From Amsterdam to Rio de Janeiro, San Antonio joins the ranks of cities photographed and shown through social media to the rest of the world.
Michael Cirlos, the photojournalist behind Humans of San Antonio, started the social media project in 2012, combining photography and storytelling to celebrate the city's growing downtown community. The book Humans of San Antonio is the culmination of five years of his photographs highlighting San Antonio's vibrant culture and people.
Through images and his subjects' own stories, Cirlos communicates not just vulnerability to fear, sadness, and anger but also resilience, hope, tolerance, and perseverance. Humans of San Antonio is a unique photography collection that celebrates the international collaborative that forms its roots.
