Touching Strangers

Post Comment

Have you read about Touching Strangers, the awesome photography project by Richard Renaldi? It’s been making the rounds online, and with good reason: what a cool idea! For each picture, Renaldi asks complete strangers to interact while posing together for a portrait in which they pretend to be, say, a married couple, or friends or family members.

The result is fantastically inspiring, not just as static photographs but as pieces of imaginative inspiration. (What are the people thinking? Where did they go afterwards? How did the project change them? Would your answers change if you didn’t know they were strangers? And so on.)

This site has a good collection of images; you can also see some nice ones, and some further background about the project, in the video I’ve embedded at the top of this post.
