This is a project for my Photography and New Media (ARTS-3340) class this term. But it has been fun to do, so I may continue it. From the About…
Think of this as an alternate reality. A series of candid photos of complete strangers, with stories added from someone’s warped imagination. Sounds like fun, no?
Names, places and even faces have sometimes been changed to protect the (not so) innocent. While the photos are true (mostly), the text is pure fiction (in most cases — who knows, perhaps the fiction is accurate).
The inspiration for this project actually came while wandering the Dallas Auto Show and occasionally getting interesting candid shots of people in addition to the cars. The most interesting things about the entire project was that I was mostly unnoticed while wandering around with a digital SLR and a 55-250mm zoom lens. I had a couple people apologize as they walked through a shot, and one general comment as I walked by ("Now that’s a photographer” or something like that).
