Mo' Stangers

Recent Stranger Portraits

After completing the 100 Strangers project, I stopped photographing for a while. At times I would feel the "itch" to photograph strangers, so if I come across somebody interesting and I have my camera, I'll ask to take their portrait. Now that I think about, I might as well go for a second set of 100. Here are a few of my most recent stranger portraits.

I was in Grapevine, TX and decided to take a walk around the mall to see if I could find one interesting stranger to photograph. It's about 7:30 PM on a Thursday evening and there was hardly anybody in the mall. Most of the stores were empty, so I saw a lot of people standing around not doing much. I was walking by a store called Proimage Sports and that when I saw Terrence. He was standing behind the counter and the store was empty. I walked in side and told him he had a great afro. He says he gets that all the time. I asked I could take his photo, he said sure. He has a friend who's a photographer they shoot all the time. I told Terrence he had a great urban look, if he wanted to do a shoot downtown to let me know

I was  attending an event when I saw Mari. I told her I liked her head dress and asked if I could take her portrait. She said no at first, but I kept telling her great she looked and she agreed. Mari is originally from Afghanistan and is an event planner.

I was in Subway for lunch when Kaylee walked in the store. Her urban style caught my attention and at that point I was interested in taking her portrait. I was at the cash register when she came in and there was one guy ahead of her and other people started coming into the Subway. I took my order and sat in my car, hoping she would come my way.  When Kaylee came out of the Subway, she walked right toward my car, I figured she was parked next to me and she was. I got out of the car with camera in hand and introduced myself. I mentioned she had an interesting look, I asked if I could take her portrait. She had this sly grin on her face and she said "sure, go for it." I'm sure she was on her lunch break, plus it was a cold windy day her in Dallas (30F) so I took a few quick shots and give her my business card.
