Shooting Strangers in Orchard Road

Shooting Strangers in Orchard Road
When I’m out on the streets, I often encounter faces that make me look twice; faces that stand out in the crowd without trying; faces that are out of the ordinary. They range from the exquisitely beautiful to the strangely wonderful. I started to approach these strangers for permission to take a photo of them. Some said no, but most said yes. After taking their portrait, I’d say ‘thank you’ and walk on along. I didn’t ask for their names, or where they came from, or what they do, because I wanted the viewers to see them how I saw them: as beautiful strangers. Read more about the project here.

A year and a half later, I got to connect with her through Facebook. I saw her from afar, walking briskly, standing out of the crowd with her short blonde hair and tall stature. She was walking with her boyfriend.

Crazy Awesome Black And White Portraits Russian photographer, Alexander Khokhlov, hailing from Moscow, has created a brilliant series of B&W “beauty-eque” portraits. I wish I knew who the MUA was so I could give her/him credit, because they did a friggin INCREDIBLE job on this shoot, whoever it was. I really love everything about these shots and it is the kind of series that pushes me to think outside of the box and find something to do that hasnt been seen before. Great job Alexander (and crew). Enjoy! Related
