All Strangers are Relations to Each Other


Through Wet Photography I have aimed to capture the individuality of strangers as I passed them on the street.

Open and exposed. Every immersive conversation I had with each person allowed me to understand and connect with their life and passions. The text included is symbolic of what I learnt about each person, the differences in their handwriting being reflective of their personality. These people at first appear to be an unfamiliar face and as you look more at each line, moment and shape of their faces, they start to appear as familiar. Influential artists include Sophie Calle, Diane Arbus and Annie Leibovitz.
