Photography - Student Portfolios
Kasey Reno, Fall 2017
I watched a documentary series on Netflix called The Kindness Diaries. A man by the name, Leon traveled around the world relying only on the kindness of others. Watching this documentary had a huge impact on me. He came across many people with all different kinds of stories and learned about the hardships that they were facing. I immediately felt moved to pay attention to my surroundings… A man on the street was no longer just a homeless man. I asked myself, “Who was this man before he got to be where he is today? What is his name? Does he have a family? What happened?”
With my Thesis on the mind this summer I thought, how can I give back, and make a difference, even if it is just to one person? And that is how my project began to take form.
