How it began…

The roots of Sidewalk Ghosts were planted in September 2011, when I began blogging a series of daily essays, street portraits and videos based on interviews of absolute strangers. Journals that captured the hope, hurt and wisdom shared by 100s of diverse individuals as I asked all a same basic set of questions. And although the responses were widely varied, one profound call-to-action emerged: Empathy toward fellow human…

A much-shared outlook brought to the surface as 1000s from around the globe saw the faces of, listened to, and responded to the stories of absolute strangers. People I did not even know, who by their reaching out to others and myself, proved there are many who genuinely desire to better know their neighbor. A majority brave enough to appreciate diversity of perspective and lifestyle, objective enough to quietly contribute to their communities and relationships, wise enough to look beyond race, creed, outlook, gender, age, attraction, religion, and loving enough to, whether in agreement or disagreement, live by a constructive code of conduct.

Evidence, that as the unique individuals we are, and via the localized attitudes and efforts of many diverse people, we each have an equal part in growing a most positive and global effect.

“The challenge is not necessarily an easy one. Something I’ve witnessed first hand after decades of photographing, filming, interviewing and interacting with diverse strangers. I’ve been hugged, trusted, and listened to by thousands. I’ve also been screamed at, mocked, criticized, rejected, spit upon, and physically pushed aside. Yet in all, a remarkable result has grown – a proof showcasing the fact that even the slightest thought, word or deed can bridge far beyond bias, misconception, failure or fear. An actionable life, play and work enhancing outlook taught me by the countless examples of unique people I’ve associated with, interviewed and observed, and with that, a unifying, self-building and team-enhancing set of ideas I am dedicated to sharing with all I can.”
