who are you

Marc Janks is a New York photographer who says he was once a shy and kid and sometimes a shy adult. [Me too.] To keep his shyness in check he started photographing complete strangers in NYC and posts them to his Tumblr Who Are You New York. I really like this concept, I’m imagining how I might put something similar into use in my own life/work. Why are strangers so much easier to photograph sometimes than the people already in our lives?

Janks also shoots on film with [my] beloved Yashicamat, and he’s pretty candid about his process (even daring us to ask him anything).
