Hi! I'm Ryan, thanks for being here.
About the project
With more than seven thousand loyal fans, the Humans of Nelson is a beautiful, touching, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs and stories celebrating our individuality and capturing the spirit of Nelson, British Columbia.
Photographer Ryan Oakley takes to the streets of Nelson, asking strangers if he can take their picture. Sometimes a bit of their conversation ends up as a caption to the photo.
This is a spin-off of the extremely popular Humans of New York.
I hope you enjoy this project and consider supporting me in this work by leaving a donation.
About Ryan Oakley
Someone at the Nelson Star thought I was one of the most interesting people in 2014. That's interesting. Ha!
