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 96: Emily

Emily wasn't sure about it at first.  I told her briefly about my project and showed her some recent portraits and that seemed to make her comfortable.  I then I told her I really wanted her to sit on the cobblestone street but if it was too awkward in her skirt it wouldn't be a problem.  She insisted on sitting down and somehow managed to look very relaxed and open to a portrait.
