From Stranger to Intimate Portrait

All of these images were taken for the second half of Andrew Lichtenstein’s workshop From Stranger to Intimate Portrait on the Street. Going deeper into the concept of photographing a stranger – students were tasked with finding a compelling character or place and creating a portrait that gives a sense of person and place.
