I was prompted to replicate the work of the famous photographer, Richard Avedon and his American West shoot; I had the idea to plant myself, with a studio backdrop, outside of one of my favorite coffee shops and ask random strangers to let me take a portrait of them. Here are the results!
It was SUCH an immense pleasure meeting these interesting people and to hear a small piece of who they are. I had an adrenaline rush that day due to encountering such awesome people. I’m looking forward to driving myself to get out of my comfort zone in this way again some time soon!
