Photographer Surprises Strangers With the Gift of 'Anti-Selfies'

What if simple acts of selflessness were as omnipresent in today’s society as the all-too-popular selfie? What if, instead of posing pout-faced, we positioned ourselves to be kind to others, illuminating that which makes us the best versions of ourselves?

Through photography, I’ve attempted to achieve precisely that. How? I often stumble upon a person or a scene that’s just begging to be captured on film. Away I snap, photographing someone enjoying a sunrise, waiting for a loved one or simply taking in a moment.

Imagine my subjects’ surprise when I then approach them, offering to hand over the images I captured. The look on people’s faces is heartwarmingly priceless.
