New York based photographer and WebVisions NYC speaker Richard Renaldi is pushing the boundaries and breaking down barriers. With his series of “Touching Strangers” portraits, Renaldi is innovating the way we thing about each other, forcing us to examine our preconceptions.
To capture his portraits, Renaldi deliberately chooses subjects of different races, ages, socioeconomic backgrounds and gender. He poses them together intimately to give off the sense that they might be lovers, family members or friends. Hundreds of Renaldi’s images can be seen in his book “Touching Strangers”, some of which can be viewed at his website.
