Stranger #001

Here we go: I started my 100 strangers project !

It is difficult to start, but even more difficult to stop! I was at Poitiers for a job interview, and 4 hours to kill, waiting for my train... As I like portraiture, I have think it was the good moment to start this project :)

Leant against the train station wall, she was smoking a cigarette... I shout at her, she rise her gaze: woaaa! Incredibly wide blue eyes!

I explained to her the concept of 100 strangers, and she accepted to be my model \o/

I could photograph her during hours, but she had to go... I think, that describe my point of view of this project: keeping an eternal memory of a fleeting encounter...


She was my #001 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at
