The Story Behind the Face





My name is Eric. In my first year in the Journalism program at Carleton University, we were given an assignment to go into the city – like Brandon Staton from Human of NewYork – to capture a photograph of an individual who could tell an interesting and captivating story. The photograph part was easy; the story took a bit more time. I was so inspired that I decided to create this page.


I want to break barriers between strangers, foster empathy and promote positivity. Please feel free to follow my journey on social media or email me at to say ‘hello’.
