I finally this weekend got myself into Newcastle to kick off my 100 Strangers Project. I have wanted to this for a long time for many reasons. I have always admired the portraits people can produce on the street. It also stretched and challenged me to engage with complete strangers. Even though I interact with strangers at weddings there is an expectation that you will have your photo taken, you are already a participant of the event. I had 30 minutes free in Newcastle and in that time I had four people willing to take part and only two rejections! It was totally amazing experience and was fantastic to engage with people who were willing to have there portrait taken. Itching to get my next set!
