The Walking the Streets photo series gives people a glimpse into the characters people could potentially meet if they ever decided to travel to Durban in South Africa. Crisp and colorful, the images fall in line with popular lifestyle portrait shots of ordinary people leading ordinary lives. Yet these captures reveal that there really is nothing ordinary about them.

Shot by young African photographer Tyler Dolan, the name of the Walking the Streets photo series literally refers to his journey through his native town. By walking the streets of Durban, he meets wonderful people along the way, some of whom even invite him in their home.

The Walking the Streets photo series not only depicts a different world, it also encourages Dolan's audience to be a little bit more neighborly themselves. Stats for African Neighborhood Portraits Trending: Older & Mild
