Photographer Puts Two Strangers Together For Intimate Photographs, And The Results Are Surprising

Photographer Puts Two Strangers Together For Intimate Photographs, And The Results Are Surprising
World

Photographer Richard Renaldi takes random people he meets on the street of New York City and asks them to pose in pictures together as if they were family members, friends or lovers.

The subjects are only asked to look like they are showing a brief amount of affection, but the facial expressions and body language within the photos make it seem like these strangers not only know each other, but also share some sort of genuine bond.

This unorthodox recipe for truly magical moments speaks volumes about both art and humanity.


How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

I think it would be interesting as a social experiment with groups of advisaries... Ie a group of students from Israel and Palestine. I have a friend who uses aikedo as a bridge between these groups... A common ground.

It's amazing how our physical actions affect our emotions.
