On April 24th, 2014 a group of people from many different walks of life gathered together at Arch Street United Methodist Church in Philadelphia to share food and stories and dress up for a photo shoot celebrating humanity. Some of the people were experiencing homelessness at the time, some came from homelessness and others were high school or college students.
Clothes, food and other supplies were gathered through the help of volunteers for the comfort and enjoyment of the models. Arch Street UMC opened their doors and their hearts to us, allowing us to use their space.
Anyone was invited to come in, eat and get comfortable. Those who needed clothes could browse the wardrobe and take anything they desired. A shower was available, along with toiletries and an electric razor; commodities that are not always available to those struggling without a home.

"human." is a culmination of the writing, photo, video and design work of Harrison Brink and Alisa Miller. It is meant to act as a forum where we show the vitality of the human spirit through the strife that people face and overcome. If you have any suggestions for the project, please contact us. All input is welcome.
