Stranger 15/100 - Naj

Stranger 15/100 - Naj

 

Our next stranger is easily the most stylish man I've photographed for this project so far. I saw him walking by just as I was finishing lunch, so I leapt up quickly to approach him for a portrait. Luckily, he said "yes".

 

Sensing he was in a hurry to get back to work, I walked with him while we talked.

 

Meet Naj.

 

Naj is from New York and was visiting Charlotte for business. You would be forgiven for thinking that Naj is a fashion model, but in fact he's in the software business. More specifically, he works in the area of Financial Analytics.

 

His advice to his younger self is "Keep going. Don't give up."

 

Thank you so much Naj for participating in the 100 Strangers Project. I hope our paths cross again one day.

 

Technical Notes: It was a clear, sunny day, and we were in a shaded area.
