Touching Strangers Richard Renaldi

Since 2007, Richard Renaldi has been working on a series of photographs that involve approaching and asking complete strangers to physically interact while posing together for a portrait. Working on the street with a large format eight-by-ten-inch view camera, Renaldi encounters the subjects for his photographs in towns and cities all over the United States. He pairs them up and invites them to pose together, intimately, in ways that people are usually taught to reserve for their close friends and loved ones.

The purpose of the project is to probably make people feel more comfortable around each other.

He chooses random people from towns and cities all over the United States.

We could apply this at our school by making people feel more comfortable around each other and have people come out of their shell.
