About this series and me feeling like a nun

Haven't seen it coming so quick, but this saturday I took the fight for new strangers out to the streets. I was really in the mood to continue this series. Even though I haven't asked a stranger to take his or her picture for almost 5 weeks now.

 

You might remember: Back in those days I was a whore when it comes to street photography, during the last weeks I felt like a nun. Saturday I worked up my courage and started things over …

 

About this shot

This was the last shot of three stranger that day. I had the idea of this shot a couple of weeks ago when I was at the fleamarket with some friends. I saw him sitting on a bench with his longboard enjoying his meal. He was eating french fries and curry sausage - a very famous dish over here.

 

About this stranger

Meet Vassili … a name I heard for the first time in a german telenovela called "Lindenstrasse" … he has a greek background, grown up in Rüsselsheim and now lives in Hamburg. Vassili is 28 years old and studies graphic design (focus on typography) … I won`t go too much into details, but we had a kinda nerdy talk about typefaces … but one of his classic favorites is Bauer Bodoni - used quite often in fashion magazines.

 

... He's into music - he used to be a dj - mainly electro and new wave. We found out that we share our appreciation to a group called Chromeo. I used a song by them as a soundtrack before - see here. His favorite song is "Needy Girl". Once you have seen the video, you might probably understand why I actually knew he likes them before even telling me ;-)
