25 Stunning Photos of Huge Crowds of People

Whenever we think of a huge crowd, we often think of the chaos, the mess, and the noise. But these photos show that there can be beauty in chaos.

With the world’s huge population (7,313,527,932, to be exact), forming a huge crowd isn’t all that hard. In cities with a high population density, you’d see a huge crowd every day during rush hour or when there’s a sale at a mall. In other cases, you might encounter a huge crowd when there’s an important event happening like a major exam or an attempt at a Guinness record.

Majority of the pictures of huge crowds below are the latter but there are also a couple of crowd photos that, even if there’s not a lot of order, there is still beauty to be found.
