6/100 Strangers: Zoe

Meet Zoe.


While having a coffee with my #5 Stranger(s), Zoe was spotted by Will. "Oooh, she looks great, you should go take her picture!, We'll mind your coffee...go!" and so I did. I knew exactly who Will was talking about as Zoe certainly stands out in the crowd with her amazing colourful hair and clothing. On a break from work outside her shop she happily agreed for me to take her photo.


Zoe works in Octopus on Portobello Road but can also be found working in the other Octopus stores around London.


Met on Portobello Road, London.


This photo is part of the 100 Strangers project. More strangers here.

    Nice colours! Well spotted Will.
  • dreamswanderer 7y

    Fantastic colors, she really turned herself into artwork!
  • Stefan Jansson 7y

    Wow. Zoe really does stand out a bit in a crowd! That's some outfit.
  • Simon 7y

    "Great" and "A bit of a mentalist" are easy to mix up. Nice pic though.

    £10 says she's a vegetarian.
  • Carla Graham 7y

    It must take her forever to get ready in the morning!
  • Chrys Campos 7y

    she's lovely, a great addiction to a "strangers project" :)
    @simon rigglesworth: your comment is not very nice. :\
  • ULI RAHMS 7y

    nice one
  • Emwilk26 6y

    I know Zoe! She usually hates people asking to take photos of her coz people/ tourists always ask to take photos of her when she's working. Lucky you!
    I work in Octopus in Cambridge, that's how I know her. She's a star...and yes well done Simon Rigglesworth!...she is a veggie. But she's only started being one to see how far her will power can stratch.
    Great photo :)
