I have a deep passion for capturing candid moments of strangers. Whether I'm on assignment or traveling for leisure, I always keep my eyes peeled for interesting faces. While approaching strangers can be intimidating, I've found that the vast majority of people are more than willing to be subjects for my photography.
One of my all-time favorite photographs was taken in West Virginia, where I came across a man sitting on a curb. I couldn't resist the chance to hear his stories, and he was kind enough to share his experiences working for the railroad. It was a truly fascinating encounter, and it's moments like these that make photography so fulfilling.
Throughout my career, I've had the pleasure of meeting individuals from all walks of life and hearing their unique stories. Even in retirement, I look forward to my next encounter with a stranger and the opportunity to learn about their life experiences. For me, capturing the essence of a person through photography is truly a magical experience.
