Self initiated project based on friend quotations and stranger character analysis.

The art of strangers.
Basis of this project was a theme i had in my head for a while and i suppose you could call a social experiment as well as a chance to do a bit of photography. 

My idea was this; i asked my facebook friends for quotes that meant something to them or really stuck in their heads, i then took the best 10 and went out into the street with the quotes printed onto presentation boards. I spent all day asking complete strangers which quote they would choose and then asked them if they would have a photograph holding their quote of choice. 

It was an interesting project as i wasn't surprised with the quotes i got from my friends (as i know their personal traits and characteristics / personalities) but i couldn't guess what the strangers would choose. It gave me an insight into what they think about life and also helped me to approach people i don't know and see them in a different light....very fun project.
