For a long time I've wanted to take on a "100 Strangers" project. The concept is fairly simple -- take 100 photographs of at least 100 people you don't know. The people are suppose to truly be strangers -- not your cousin's brother-in-law or the neighbor down the street.
The idea is to tell a story with the photograph; to communicate who the person is, or might be, with one single photo. The idea is also to stretch yourself as a photographer and maybe make a few friends along the way. Some people only include forward-facing, traditional portraits for this project, but I really prefer candids so my plan is to include those too.
I love the idea. And I'm going to try it this year. I took my first two photos in Mexico. Here's to the next 98!
