This incredible collection of moments represents the joy, innocence, despair, curiosity, and undying perseverance within all of us.
No matter where we’re from, these are the emotions that unite us – it’s what makes us human.
We set out to capture this spirit in 16 incredible photographs, and I truly hope you enjoy.
