Touching Strangers

Being in touch with strangers is enriching, is risky, it forces us to reflect about who we are by presenting us with an otherness we may or may not understand.   

I know these kind of experiments, of making strangers get in close proximity (like a recent viral video about strangers kissing, which ended up being fake), may seem sort of superficially trendy.  But I myself find them fascinating and, if you think you might too, you'll find these series of photographs by Richard Renaldi on John St and King St W, as part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography festival
