Oliver Scott Sykes. The story behind this photo is nothing crazy but I feel is unique. Unlike most of the previous photos i have taken and posted, this one is a bit different because I’ve never met Oli. I usually have been on the same tour with everyone I’ve photographed holding the #suicide sign if not at least walked by each other and said hi, This was not the case with this fellow. Until today Oli was like a mythical creature from a land far away. He was someone I heard about and saw pictures of but never had solid proof of his existence. Anyway long story short today I met Oli. Without much of an introduction I approached him and said “hey man my name is Carlos and I have this project where I take photos of someone kids look up to in hopes to motivate them towards a positive future, mind if I take a photo of you holding this sign I made”. Without much hesitation he stood up from his chair and said “sure thing”. I took the photo, said thanks and right after he extended his hand to shake mine and said “Oli nice to me you”. The entire thing happened in under 2 minutes. Aside from this small talk I don’t know much about Oli but I do know actions speak louder than words. Thanks for showing humility and respect to a funny looking stranger bud, ill catch you around.
The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands.
I don’t care if people unfollow this is spectacular
