About the project

With more than six thousand loyal fans, the Humans of Nelson is a beautiful, touching, funny, and inspiring collection of photographs and stories celebrating our individuality and capturing the spirit of Nelson, British Columbia.

Photographer Ryan Oakley takes to the streets of Nelson, asking strangers if he can take their picture. Sometimes a bit of their conversation ends up as a caption to the photo.

This is a spin-off of the popular Humans of New York.

Enjoy!

"Someone from worked dropped him off at my door. The guy didn't want him, and told me to drop him off at the SPCA if I didn't want him. I thought the dog was ugly at first, with his goggly eyes and crooked tail. And he was a little shit. He crapped on my bed!"

"So why did you keep him?'

"He makes me laugh everyday. I've had him for 5 years now. He's awesome."
