The Eyes of A Stranger: Street Portraits

Juried by Valerie Jardin


On Exhibit June 8 thru August 18 in the Mpls Photo Center, Main Gallery. Opening Reception Friday, June 8 at 6:30 p.m.


"Making a good portrait of a complete stranger is a challenge that all serious photographers must eventually face. It is an acquired skill. Its one thing to take a picture of a pedestrian or stranger on the sly, and quite another to actually make a portrait of them. We can choose to engage them or not, but each encounter should result in a positive experience for both the subject and the photographer. A moment in time.

The desired end result is a strong photograph that does reveal the brief connection that we shared.

The eyes don't lie. Nor does the camera."
