11-year-old captures essence of Arkansas through photos


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (KTHV)- Every day we pass hundreds, if not thousands of people. We see their faces, we see their clothes, but we don't always see beneath their image to their essence.

One young Arkansas girl is trying to change that, one picture at a time.

11-year-old Katie Chandler began the Facebook page Humans of Arkansas in July as a way to tell the hundreds of stories we don't see every day.

"Some people reject us and some people are glad to do it," Chandler said smiling.

"Essentially what's she's trying to do is to capture the essence of Arkansas through photographs, and anecdotes, and quotes," added Katie's mother Amanda Chandler.

Even though she's from the tiny town of Newhope, Katie has traveled all over Arkansas, cementing moments in time in Hot Springs, Little Rock and Fayetteville, introducing new characters, triumphs, and tribulations with each snap shot.
