As part of an attempt to practice my photography skills and interact more meaningfully with my community, I began taking photos of everyone and everything. I visited Pioneer Square one day to see if where my curious mind would take me. In regards to my human subjects, I asked them if they’d like to share something with me and be included in this piece. I was thankful that many people gladly obliged to get their photos taken and share their inspirations and thoughts with me.
I perused down to Pioneer Square in south Downtown of Seattle. This area is densely populated with the homeless and poverty-stricken population of Seattle. Per someone I met in the area, no one goes here at night except for its denizens. Within the past two years, Pioneer Square has turned into a lively place for restaurants, boutiques, and street fairs. It’s now a blend of those affected by poverty and a popular place for nightlife and dining. Things change and I hope that this is an improvement for all humans of Seattle.
