100 Strangers David Weir

Meet 100 strangers, 100 portraits, and 100 stories
Hi there, my name is David Weir. By day I’m usually designing pretty pixels for Ludo made here in Los Angeles, but in my spare time I enjoy taking photographs. This project is an attempt to step out of my comfort zone and into a new level of portrait photography: by taking 100 portraits of people I have never met. I am in no way a professional photographer, but I hope that this project will help develop my photo journalistic skills further and provide some stories into to the life’s of these strangers. Follow me as I attempt to reach 100 portraits and hopefully meet some cool new people on the way. Feel free to comment, like and share these images so everyone can have their say about how I am going and what they can learn from the subjects I’ve photographed. Hopefully this will be a lot of fun and I hope you can enjoy it with me. ( http://weiry.com/100strangers/ ) <-- Link for his project
When he went to Santa Monica he met Mallory. Mallory was happy and willing to be part of the project 100 strangers. They have a little chitchat then he took a picture of her. Mallory is the 2nd stranger of the project. ( http://weiry.com/100strangers/?portfolio=stranger-02-mallory )
When he moved from Australia to LA, Vladimir was the very first stranger he met. He is the 40th stranger for his project. ( http://weiry.com/100strangers/?portfolio=stranger-40-vladimir )
Purpose for his project: To step-out of his comfort zone and to help developed his photo journalistic skills and also to tell a story about the life of strangers.
In the street of Santa Monica is where he took his photos.
He photograph different people--men and women.
He chooses his people randomly or someone who catches his attention. For example, the lady in the picture, her name is Rebecca. David Weir was waiting to cross the road then Rebecca stood beside him. She was wearing a brightly colored shirt and that catches Weir's attention.

100 strangers project. What is it really? Watch the video above.

How could you take this project and apply it to what we are doing?

We can ask different people about if they feel belong to the school or not. We can go to mall or just in school and take the picture of different people and ask them their story.
