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 40: Charlie

After an epic fail with using flash on a subject I was starting to get a little nervous about whether or not I should post.  The model, Amy, was great and we had an interesting conversation but my lack of technical skill didn't do her justice.  Sorry Amy.

I walked up to Charlie at ten to midnight when he was standing outside a bar with some of his friends.  When I explained to him what I was doing he was very enthusiastic and even added his input into the composition.  I love a good collaboration and Charlie was naturally creatively inclined.  Charlie worked in Manhattan as a manager of a Money Exchange but lived in Brooklyn.
