touching strangers

I'm a little late posting this work by Richard Renaldi. You may have seen it by now, as it's been getting a lot of coverage in the press and on social media. Its message is hopeful, pointing to what could be possible if we all just slowed down and shared the love with perfect strangers. The images, made with an 8" x 10" view camera are amazing, regardless of whether the people knew each other or not. The fact that they did not simply takes them to the next (very interesting and complicated) level.

This ad appeared a week after Renaldi's project was featured in the New York Times. He posted this on his blog with the simple title: "Plagiarism?"
