All these images were taken by ICP PJ students who took Andrew Lichtenstein’s workshop From Stranger to Intimate Portrait on the Street on the weekend of October 3rd and 4th. The goal of this project was to connect with a stranger on the streets of the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

  1. I like that the photographers actually connected enough with the subjects to at least get their names. I’ve never been particularly happy about someone randomly taking my photo. Decades ago, when I was backpacking around the world, many of the more remote cultures thought that a camera captured a piece of a person’s soul, and taking a photo without permission could get rather testy.

  3. It’s amazing to imagine all of the different stories, places, hopes, dreams, fears, thoughts, and experiences buried within each person’s face. Thanks for posting this.

  4. Each face has a lifetime of stories, I adore street photography, wonderful photos! Thanks so much for sharing this.

    This pictures make me feel we are so little things in this huge world, and some can mean so much…

  7. So much for the maxim of avoiding eye contact in the City … they all obviously have much they could voice. I wish we could hear a bit from each of these individuals.

  8. “The goal of this project was to connect with a stranger on the streets of the Lower East Side of Manhattan” – mission honourably accomplished with some to spare, I daresay!

  9. Nice idea. I think one of the best photo themes is the portrait: a face can show all the possible feelings, emotions, beauty or ugliness better than any other subject.

  10. Perfect. I am still struggling to come to someone and talk for a while, or ask for a photo.

  11. These pictures are great. Every single person here is captured in a way that gives them depth and hints at the story they have to tell. Of course, you’d have a real challenge in my case. The camera has not been built that can take a decent photograph of me (clearly a failing in the technology rather than the subject).

    Pics that have some kind of story behind them. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

  13. Captivating!! Each face and each expression on it has something to tell. An unsaid tale…………………..
