100 Strangers

As photographers, we are constantly pushing ourselves to take more photos. This can be more difficult than it sounds, and there are a number of photography projects out there such as Project 365, 52 Walks, A-Z and several others that spark creativity.  Perhaps the most imagination-inducing photography project of all is the 100 Strangers Project.

The 100 strangers project encourages photographers to stretch their comfort zones by taking 100 portraits of subjects which they have never encountered.  The concept is designed to improve not only the photography skills of the artist, but also social skills, by forcing photographers to meet new people.

Photographers are encouraged to socialize with their subjects, and ask for permission to take a photo of them.  The final challenge for the photographer is to tell a story with the image they capture.
