This is from a new project for 2107 called Cross Walkers, to take place in the                                          
                                            Chicago Loop. It will be a series of street portraits; I’ll be asking folks that
                                            have just finished crossing a crosswalk if they’d like their portrait taken and
                                            have them tell me a bit about themselves if they’re keen on it. The premise is
                                            über simple, but sometimes I think it’s best to keep it that way in this case
                                            and simply let the images speak for themselves. In the city - and most 
                                            everywhere else, crossing the street is like breathing, we don’t think twice 
                                            about it, and it’s something we all do regularly. Is it significant in and of
                                            itself, I would say not, but it will be a great opportunity to meet some 
                                            people who I otherwise might never have met,  and a way to de-isolate a bit
                                            in an otherwise impersonal setting, the crosswalk, where folks are rarely
                                           inclined to strike up a conversation with a stranger.

                From a sketchy basement party in #madisonwi - for the pic on the right I wish I remembered what I said to them that caused the larger guy to nestle his
                head into the green-pants-wearing fellow, it was certainly a rather an unexpected response haha... #35mm #contaxg2
