At Airbnb, our Hosts are responsible not only for providing a place to stay, but for helping to bring their corner of the world to life for guests. Meet The Locals is a series of articles that showcases the many personalities and homes of the people that make Airbnb possible, while offering a window into life in their cities.
Our photography team had already been documenting hosts by partnering with local photographers around the world. After we worked with them to identify the most compelling people and images, we interviewed each host to understand more about their lives and how they came to host in their cities.
I created a system for the feature images, and each of the 26 Host stories is brought to life with photo collage and illustrations.
