People of Pictou County bio picture
  • WELCOME

    Inspired by Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York, People of Pictou County offers a glimpse into the lives of the people that you meet when you're walking down the street. People of Pictou County celebrates the every day moments, the smiles, the ups (and downs) of what it means to be human. But most of all, it's a reflection of the spirit, tenacity, talent and heart that defines the people of this wonderful place we call home, Pictou County.

    People of Pictou County started on May 5, 2013. You can see the original project by clicking here.

“I just moved here last year from North Carolina. My parents are from here so they moved back to be with all of my family. We always came up here for the summers, but it was a big change to move.” “What was the hardest part about it?” “Starting school and not knowing anyone, but I met some friends and now it’s good – it’s all good.”

She’d been tightly holding onto his hand throughout the exchange, but when I stooped down and asked her what her favourite thing about Grandpa was, she looked up at him confidently with a smile and answered: “Everything!”
