On the street with splendid strangers

The Atlantic Magazine recently had an essay by Leslie Jamison about the photographs of Garry Winogrand.

The essay is amazing. It really speaks to me as a Humanist - and captures the experience of being on on a street full of splendid strangers. #humanism

She says these photographs of splendid strangers helped her feel less alone as she went through a difficult time.

This is the beauty of art. It helps us feel connected to other humans. It's why the humanities are called- the humanities. It's about connecting with other humans to help us feel more human.

Enjoy the essay. I did.
