Talking to Strangers Project

This work began out of a challenge to photograph fifty strangers over the course of a year. I didn't make the deadline, but that hasn't stopped me from talking to strangers. This project has sparked a deep desire for a more meaningful connection with the people around me. And so instead of always being buried in my phone (which still happens more than I'd like it to) I try to say at least say hello to people in the check out line, or at the airport, or walking down the street, and when I'm lucky, we share stories that turn into powerful film portraits.
