Photography student Tyra Williams has produced an interesting portrait project entitled "Real People, Real Stories" which portrays people who have scars. Tyra found participants from the project from Craigslist.com and says she was "very intrigued by the different scars people have and why they have them. Every scar has a story. The scars have shaped the person, they have caused the person pain, and they have empowered the person to overcome any obstacle."
Tyra says whe was initially going for a Richard Avedon "American West" look to her photos.
