To quote from Shakespeare, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” To prove his point, here we have assembled a cast of anonymous and well known “actors”, portrayed in real life scenes, in locations from around the world.

Probably the most wonderful quality of these pictures is how natural they are; candid images of men, women and children at work, rest and play! To achieve this, the authors have captured the expressions, emotions, costumes, cultures, and everyday lives of the subjects, either from a distance or from a casual bystander’s view.

The charm, simple pleasures, or even mystery to be found in these everyday scenes is quite captivating, and will reveal something new to the eye on each viewing.
