Community Artists Collective presents The 100 Strangers Project opening reception
The 100 Strangers Project, photographer Alonzo Williams Jr.’s 13-month-long documentation of random encounters with 100 perfect strangers, uses the collaboration of portrait photography and unscripted conversation to penetrate the misconceptions often impressed upon audiences by social media, television and the entertainment industry. Williams’ encounter with his first 50 strangers during a trip to New York City was a catalyst for this project and ultimately led to his portrayal of the subjects beyond their stereotypical surface images.
The project includes video interviews which reflect moments by the strangers sharing insight into their lives. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 25.
