Strangers























































These photos are the result of exercising a desire to approach and photograph people at random.  They're arbitrary documents, the emphasis on the process rather than the end product.  Each encounter lasted no more than a minute and resulted in a single photograph.

I don't see these pictures as revealing anything.  I know nothing about these people, the ambiguity is what interests me here.  A quote from Duane Michals that seems to fit:

"I never believe portraits because people are not what they appear to be."
