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 49: Paul

Paul was my host at a place upstate last week.  He and my friend's parents went through college together and had been very close ever since.  Paul was well traveled man.  He and his wife were preparing for a second trip to Cuba in two weeks.  They had a home in Houston where they spent time throughout the year.  When it was discovered that I was from Texas he said, "We're hanging the flag in the front."  Before he did I asked if he'd sit with it in his lap for a picture first.
