Social Circles

Social circles may be labeled by society, those within them, or not at all, but the fact is that people cluster together for a number of reasons in cultures all over the world. These various groups may form around shared beliefs, ideals, interests, or may even be something a person is born into. Social groups come in all different shapes and sizes, and say a lot about the individuals in them as well as society at large.

For this theme, study the many social circles that make up our world. While you may decide to document your own social network, make sure to also consider looking at the many other groups that are around you. Wherever you decide to focus your camera, try capturing what ties that particular social circle together or what distinguishes them from others.
