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 7: Bo

"You're family here." That was Bo's response when I commented on how warm people were in Louisiana. He was such a sweet guy. I made this shot in a desperate measure to ge something done at 11pm.  He loved dancing and watched all those dance shows. The lobby tv of the hotel I was staying in was playing Dance Moms, a show which I neither watch nor condone. But I kept my opinions to myself. He was going to school until his mom got sick and he returned to Hammond to care for her. He was working on his R.N. and had a job at the front desk of a hotel in Hammond in the meantime.
