After being inspired by a recent post of ‘A year in photographs, 2014’ by the official White House photographer, I thought I would pull some images together from my library for 2014. And here they are.
In October I participated in Nocturne, an all night art event. The project was called “Who Is A Stranger“. Briefly, we brought total strangers together in a makeshift studio and shot their raw first meeting. Then, after 15 seconds of eye contact and providing the strangers with props, we took another photograph. The first photograph shows the two people obviously being a little awkward, unsure, expressed by their body behaviour. After the eye contact, they start to loosen and feel more open to this new person.
