Loving this series by Kramer O’Neill, Till Human Voices Wake Us. The extreme contrast and grittiness introduces this uncanny sense of foreboding. (via this isn’t happiness)

Richard Renaldi Photographs Touching Strangers

November 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Touching Strangers is an ongoing work by photographer Richard Renaldi wherein he meets two or more people on the street who are strangers to each other and then asks them to pose for a photograph with the only stipulation being they must make physical contact in some way.

I undertook Touching Strangers as a means of bringing new complexity to the art of portrait-making. My objective was to introduce an unpredictable variable in a very traditional photographic formula; to create a spontaneous and fleeting relationship between complete strangers in front of my 8×10 camera.

It’s interesting to catch the tell-tale signs of unease in some of the portraits: the willingness to make contact with the arms, but not the palms of the hand, or the clenched fist instead of a firmly grasped shoulder. And yet many of the photos seem totally uninhibited as if the individuals had been friends for years. (thnx, Megan)
