[email protected], taking an individual portrait every day at noon for an entire year of people found around. The most interesting part, is that only TWO people of the 365 refused to have their portrait taken. It is often the case, the chance to photograph unknown people is not limited by the subject but by the photographer”s fear to ask permision. Most people feel flatered from the interest that someone cares to take their picture.

I photographed lots of family, friends and neighbors along the way, but mostly total strangers, who, funnily enough, rarely said “no” to my request to take their picture – only two people in the entire year. – Porter Gifford
