We spend our lives interacting with people – from close and intimate encounters

with our family and friends to even the briefest encounters with a person at the

coffee shop. As life moves faster and faster we tend to veer away from what we

might assume to be a trifle encounter with someone we don’t know. We prefer to

leave our headphones in and continue, disengaged, from the world around us.

The invitation to chat may be as simple as a passing smile from someone in the

street and yet, we so very rarely stop and take the time.

Stranger doesn’t mean Strange attempts to break down this barrier of engaging

with “strangers” by making a conscious effort to engage with everyday people

and photograph their portrait. The body of work is part of a large collection of

images from all around the world.
