the ny times has an amazing series online of photographic stories of people...along with their own words. each covers a different topic and each lasts about 3 minutes. i can't get enough of them. i think this is why i chose cultural anthropology as my major. people. our differences, our similarities. check this website out. it beats the hell out of tv.
some favorites of mine from the series:
Stefanie Rinza:The Animal Rescuer
Joseph Cotton: The Grandfather
William A. Thomas: The Regular
i could go on but instead, you choose your own.....
