40 Photos of Faces That Tell Stories

Every face has a story. We see hundreds of people each day and we give very little thought to the stories their faces have to say. From subway to your local grocery store salesman, every single person’s photographs tells a story about that person and the emotional condition he/she is in.

Capturing all these emotions and ‘stories’ into a photograph is an art in its own. It takes a hawk’s eye to recognize such situation and take the photograph that are worth a thousand words.  Timing is particularly essential in such kind of photographs. A photographer has to be at the perfect place with perfect camera and take the photograph at the perfect timing. These things together make this type of photography quite brilliant.
