UK based professional photographer Lee Howell created this Caricature photo project for Free Range. He says “Leading up to the end of a final year studying a BA in Professional Photography, I thought it would be a good idea to create caricatures of my fellow students and lecturers at Edinburgh College. This concept also suitably fitted in with our plans to advertise the graduate exhibition at Free Range, the Old Truman Brewery, Mill lane, London, E1.”

Besides his fellow students’ caricatures, there were also 30 other caricatures of strangers on this project. He persuaded unsuspecting members of the public, whom happen to be passing by the studio to come in and be a part of their caricature project, which portrays the many faces of personality. These portraits have then been extensively retouched and exaggerating those features that stood out.

Return to Sender by Tommy Kha

Memphis-based photographer Tommy Kha created a photo project called Return to Sender that takes a unique approach to self-portraiture. Rather than taking a straightforward image, he himself engaged in a one-sided kiss with dozens of strangers from various places. What’s amusing is that it’s the other person that is committed to the kiss while Kha stands motionless.

His passive character mirrors the stereotypes of Asian men who’s almost always depicted as neutered, asexual, or submissive within media. When approaching strangers, he has one direction for them, “”They can kiss me however they want but they have to kiss me on the lips.”

This project is still ongoing. Kha was born in Memphis, Tenn., and earned a bachelor’s degree from the Memphis College of Art.

Richald Renaldi, a New York based photographer is behind this unusual photography project called “Touching Strangers.” He asks strangers and make them pose as if they know each other. The project conveys more than just the pat, the kiss, the hug because it stirs up far more emotions.

His aim was to encourage people to break away from who they are and interact with strangers with their bodies touching in some way. It creates intimate relationship that exists only in the photograph. The images are both beautiful and strange and crosses the boarders that lies between strangers.

Matt Stuart Shoots People by Matt Stuart

An interest in street photography-particularly in London streets, a fascination with people and how they live their lives is what drives Matt Stuart to create this photography project. The subjects in his photos are merely strangers going on in their everyday pattern of life.

Today, in a world where almost everything is fake or photoshopped, the idea of street photography, where people capture raw moments- what is in the street, the park or the museum and showing that this actually existed is I think more significant than ever.

Stuart says in one of his interviews that he was often mistaken as a paparazzi. Over the years he learned what to do and what not to do. He may look like a stalker but his intentions are not invading privacy but rather exposing the truth in the streets.
