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 32: Andrea

Technically speaking: I wish I hadn't cropped her off at the feet.  It's really bugging me.  Experience speaking:  Very happy to have met this woman.

You ever had one of those moments when you meet someone and you can just tell that their intellect is far superior to yours?  Andrea was one of those people.  This shot was taken at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco and she was responsible for a lecture that was taking place minutes before.  She was a portrait artist so we had an interesting chat about people for a minute.  Just before we parted ways she let me know that previously in her life she was lawyer and judge.  She's lived in San Francisco most of her life but was originally from the Northeast.
