Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York  Facebook page has inspired many photographers around the world to share photos and stories of ordinary people in the streets in their respective countries. Let us review similar initiatives in Southeast Asia.
The Humans of Brunei  page was created on May 17, 2013. Below is a photo of Brunei students
Meanwhile, the Humans of Indonesia  page was created on August 16, 2013. Below is a photo of Indonesians in the Harau valley waterfalls in the Bukittinggi area:
There is also a Humans of Jakarta  page. Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia
Check the Humans of Bali  page. Bali is a popular island in Indonesia.
…firstly its because I want those people know that there are people out there who care, for their opinions, for their stories, for their time, for their attention, for their thinking, for their views on life, on every issue, on everything, and that these people make Malaysia home. Second, i like to listen. and ask questions of course. And thirdly, well because I was at a point of my life where i really just needed to talk to someone, i needed someone to not help, but to just listen, no one was there for me then. I always have this thing in my mind, thinking that i might come across someone today who really just need someone who would listen. Thats why I do this
There is a separate page for the Humans of Kuala Lumpur . Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia’s capital.
The page is a small urban project that I've just started about the people and their everyday lives in Bangkok, which has become a much more hybrid-society than ever. Revealing lives of the city inhabitants would make us better aware that everyone is interconnected.
As the political crisis  deepens in Thailand, Bangkok residents are calling for a ‘peaceful Sunday’
Check also the Humans of Chiang Mai  page. Chiang Mai is located north of Thailand.
In Laos, there is a Humans of Vientiane  page. Vientiane is the country’s capital.
Below is a photo of Stacy from Singapore relaxing at Clarke Quay. Photo from the Humans of Singapore  page:
The People of Yangon  page created by Chris James White was also inspired by the Humans of New York idea. Yangon is major city in Myanmar.
