On Wednesday I made a Touching Strangers portrait at a beach in south Florida. This is around the 60th image I have made from the series. I should emphasize that they are incredibly difficult and challenging to make and I am pushing myself in new and interesting directions. Well, this last shot may have resulted in a rendezvous or even a romance for all I know, as the couple I paired ended up sitting together after I had moved on - and from what I could tell seemed to have left the beach together at the same time. This may be all purely fantastical thinking on my part (who knows perhaps they just liked talking to each other) - but it does touch on one of the themes of the work which is the very real human potential to connect to any random stranger. Did I mention that this was a nude beach...
