Spent the day at Mannum in SA with my good friend Susan (a producer with the ABC Open – Riverland) “working” on the current National Portrait of a Stranger Project. As described on the ABC site the project ‘Portrait Of A Stranger invites you to take a series of portraits of strangers, and learn new social, photographic and technical skills.
In this project, you will need to find a willing subject; someone who is a stranger and who is happy to share their story. Capture your subject in a single photograph and short written piece of up to 200 words. Challenge yourself to talk to and photograph at least five strangers, and to find out a bit more about each person you meet.’
It was a fascinating experience that took me out of my comfort zone, approaching strangers and asking them tell me their story and take their photograph. Very rewarding and interesting.
