1. In America, one of the early warnings children receive from their parents is the saying “don’t talk to strangers.” It is for good reason and serves to protect them from the potential child predator. Yet, somehow this propaganda which gets etched in these young minds can evolve to a mental state where fully grown adults are always hesitant to trust anyone they don’t personally know. The reality though, is that most people on this planet are in fact friendly and nice, and share similarities with everyone; similarities such as loving family, working for a better life and being loved. Photographer Richard Renaldi created a photographic project in 2007 called “Touching Strangers.” In this series, Renaldi sought to create unpredictable variables into traditional photography, and to create spontaneous relationships between complete strangers.
