Human - by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.

"Filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent 3 years collecting real-life stories from more than 2,000 women and men in 60 countries. Working with a dedicated team of translators, journalists and cameramen, he captures deeply personal and emotional accounts of topics that unite us all; struggles with poverty, war, homophobia, and the future of our planet mixed with moments of love and happiness."

In these days where people use the refugee crisis to reveal their ignorance and hatred, I stumbled upon this beautiful project and ended up watching all 41 portraits. I was moved by some, inspired by others. Here are my favourite ones. Because sometimes you need the reminder: being HUMAN is a beautiful thing.
