Leah Nichols, 73 Questions, 2017

b. 1985, Daejeon, South Korea
Lives and works in San Francisco

In the style of Vogue’s rapid-fire interview series of the same name, 73 Questions takes you through the streets of San Francisco with Steve Jones, who, at the time this video was made, was experiencing homelessness. A poet and San Francisco resident who has lived in the city for over 40 years, Jones answers questions about his life in the city, his literary influences, and his hopes for the future.

73 Questions emphasizes the importance of an individual’s voice. Like Jones, we all have worthy stories to share whether or not we realize it.
