Stranger #36 Cosmo

When I came across this guy, who’s called Cosmo, he was walking on the way to a bankomat, smoking a cigarette. I stopped him and asked if Cosmo could give me a bit of his time. I quickly explained Cosmo the project . Then he kindly accepted a few photos. Normally i don’t shot portraits with sunglasses but I think that glasses in combination with his hair are a part of Cosmo.


So I took several pictures of him without the cigarette and the last one with the cigarette in his mouth. We looked together at the results on the LCD and we agreed, that the smoke is a nice detail on the portrait.


Thanks so much for being in my project Cosmo, and I hope you like the results!


So here is my stranger number 36.
