SAN ANTONIO - The official release party for a new book that celebrates the people of San Antonio had an official release party Thursday night.

"Humans of San Antonio is a compilation of photographs taken by Michael Cirlos. It's a project he's been working on for more than four years, telling the stories of more than 1,000 people he's photographed downtown.

Cirlos said he was inspired by the popular book, "Humans of New York."

"When I moved to the downtown area I discovered so many things about downtown that catered not only to me but my friends and family," Cirlos said. "I just wanted to showcase the vibrancy and culture that's downtown for everyone on social media."

The book is available online for $24.95.
