Michael Cirlos is the photojournalist behind Humans of San Antonio, a social media project founded in 2012 that combines photography and storytelling to promote the spirit of San Antonio's growing downtown community. The book Humans of San Antonio is the culmination of more than four years of photographs highlighting the people, culture, and vibrancy of San Antonio. As a community that has weathered economic imbalance and proven itself a leader in urban redevelopment and twenty-first-century innovation, San Antonio embraces change while continuing to celebrate the diversity, history, and individuality that makes it unique.

Humans of San Antonio is uniquely individual as a photography collection while celebrating the international collaborative that forms its roots.
