Created by Wesley Verhoeve, One of Many is a monthly series of photo essays about twelve cities across the US and their creative communities. Wesley immerses himself in each local creative community and profiles some of the most interesting creatives of the area: artists, makers, chefs, writers, brewers, entrepreneurs and others.
People around the globe choose to work for themselves, to freelance or work for small companies. This project captures this creative movement that is currently reshaping the global economy and culture, inspiring and encouraging others to make the leap and pursue their desired craft.
Wesley, who is co-founder of handmade men’s accessories and home goods company GNTLMN and art curator at WeTransfer says: “Being a small business owner or a creative independent is exhilarating, but it can also be quite lonely and stressful. One of Many is a reminder that we are not alone. We are part of a growing movement. We are one of many.”
