Strangers

hat's this all about? It's an ambitious personal project to make a portrait of a someone I've never met before in my life every day for the span of one year.

Stranger 3: Forrest

Man I got lucky with this guy. I'd been waiting for a half hour standing in the rain in pioneer courthouse square in Portland when this kid with a bright jacket walked by. In our introductions he told me he was a model. Relief and stress traded places in my nervous system. Gracious to be shooting someone comfortable in front of a camera and nervous that he'd be able to sense my amateur stylings. He was from milwaki. Which at first I thought was Milwaukee.
Long trip, I said.
I just take a bus, he replied with a suspicious look on his face.
After conversing I realized he was talking about milwaki, OR. We chatted briefly about women and traveling, I thanked him and then went our separate ways.
