‘Stories from the Shadows’ is a compilation of photos taken during my time working at The Free Press, from 2016 to 2019.

The title of the gallery represents a characteristic that all chosen subjects share – humility. Inspired by them, I brought their stories out of the shadows and in turn, allowed others the chance to be inspired as well.

These people are humble folk, and do not live to boast about their accomplishments. For this I respect them greatly.
