total strangers: portraits of people I didn't know
Taken between 1986 and 1989, portraits of randomly selected strangers that I encountered while walking in New York City. The people in these pictures are shown in public, but in unguarded, intimate moments. Upon approaching them I would simply ask if I could take their portrait. Most people graciously agreed to be photographed and the whole process usually took 5 to 10 minutes per portrait.
