Why Richard Renaldi Makes Strangers Touch Each Other

A chasm between. An awkward lean. Arms draped around shoulders… loosely.

While most photographers sweat to make their subjects appear casual, their camera invisible, Richard Renaldi went another way.

He approaches strangers of all walks of life, and he asks them to touch each other.

Viewing the photos without knowing his setup, one can’t quite guess why they’re wrong or what’s going on, but there’s an inescapable mystery to them. In a country where physical touch is taboo, his project is daring.

And you thought taking ordinary portraits of strangers was hard!
