    Based on Richard Renaldi's "Touching Strangers" experiment, of taking photos of 2 strangers together that have never met. We took this concept and applied it to our local University, Bemidji State University in northern MN. I shot this video with the Sony NEX FS700r with the servo zoom kit lens. A very few shots mixed in with the Canon T3i with the 24-105 f/4.0 L lens. John Latourelle Photography was the Photographer in this video. We plan on continuing and doing this experiment again on the same campus. This time with more time, more planning, and more experience.

          "Touching Strangers" by Richard Renaldi is available online here: http://bit.ly/1ktftkW On Wednesday, April 16, we joined Richard Renaldi for a talk and signing of his new book, Touching Strangers. Since 2007, Renaldi has been working on this series of photographs by approaching and asking complete strangers to physically interact while posing together for a portrait. Working on the street with a large-format, 8-by-10-inch view camera, Renaldi encounters the subjects for his photographs in towns and cities all over the United States. He creates spontaneous and fleeting relationships between strangers for the camera, often pushing his subjects beyond their comfort levels. These relationships may only last for the moment the shutter is released, but the resulting photographs are moving and provocative, and raise profound questions about the possibilities for positive human connection in a diverse society.

                      Since 2007, photographer Richard Renaldi has worked on a series of photographs for which he asks complete strangers to physically interact while posing together for a portrait. Working on the street with a large format 8-by-10 view camera, Renaldi encounters his subjects in towns and cities all over the United States. Renaldi’s objective was to introduce an unpredictable variable into a traditional photographic formula, and to create spontaneous and fleeting relationships between complete strangers. The portraits are extremely difficult to make, involving complex negotiations with the participants that push them past comfort levels, into a physical intimacy normally reserved for loved ones or friends. Touching Strangers creates intimate and ephemeral relationships that exist only for the moment of the photograph. The images are beautiful and strange, crossing out of the zones of safe physical intimacy with strangers and into deep emotional landscapes never photographed before. In Spring 2014, Aperture Foundation will publish Touching Strangers as a photobook, including new photographs from Renaldi’s shoots this summer in Albuquerque, Chicago, New York City, and Southern California. Pre-order the book now on Kickstarter (Funding period: June 21 through August 5, 2013): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aperturefoundation/touching-strangers-photographs-by-richard-renaldi
