Share your own Touching Strangers photographs with the hashtag #TouchingStrangers on Instagram or Twitter, and contribute to the Touching Strangers exhibition in New York. Photographs should be of people you don't know and who don't know each other, before the photo is taken, who you ask to touch each other for the picture.
Through May 15, I will be picking my favorites to show alongside the exhibition. Visit the Touching Strangers Facebook page to see some of them.

I just finished my 5th annual large format portrait class at ICP last month and I am quite proud of the work and growth of this years class. Here is a little peek at what these view camera virgins were able to accomplish in just two short weeks.
