Humans of San Antonio Starts Kickstarter Campaign to Publish Book

Humans of San Antonio could finally make the jump from social media to print.

From 2012 to 2016, photojournalist Michael Cirlos has been combining photography and story telling to chronicle Downtown's diversity, history and individuality.

The book would be 224 pages with more than 300 photos covering four years.

A few days ago, Cirlos started a Kickstarter campaign to make the book a possibility. So far, the campaign has raised $1,200 of $10,000 needed to print the book.

Beginning with the movement Humans of New York (HONY), a project to share the stories of New Yorkers, Humans of San Antonio is also part of the Global Humans Project, a network of major cities around the world dedicated to capturing a glimpse into the lives of the everyday citizen. From Amsterdam to India to Rio de Janeiro, San Antonio joins the ranks of cities photographed and shown through social media to the rest of the world. 

Check out the Humans of San Antonio Facebook page to see some of the photos.
