Capturing people and their essence using images is a challenging way to work, but this guy's got it down.
Meet Instagram humanist/activist Ruddy Roye. He has an interesting method of photo composition:
"My work is about people, mostly. It's about how people live … and how people live in their environment. I'm Ruddy Roye, and I'm a photographer living in Brooklyn.
A picture for me starts with either a person or a place. If I find a place, I usually stop and wait for the person to come into the picture. If I see a person, I look for whatever texture I can use to embellish the picture. For me, the story begins with what's current, what's in the news."
Almost 120,000 Instagram followers later, people are noticing.
Here's some of his work, as shown in the video below:
