Street Portraits

I decided I was going to create a series of street portraits approaching strangers in the streets whom I thought would be interesting to photograph.  This project is so much fun, I decided to do it with a theme to gain more conversation with the subjects and to find out a little about these strangers, my theme is

“If you could have a superpower what would it be?”

Some of the responses were so interesting not everyone wanted to fly or have x-ray vision, which are cool powers don’t get me wrong, but a lot of people would of used their powers for good to make the world a better place for everyone!

My favourite response was from this lovely Gentleman:

whom responded with “I would share the power to make us all Equal in the world, So there would be no war, no fighting for what others have, there would be peace and everyone would be happy.”

These responses inspired me to shoot more street portraits and make this an on going project to find a little good in the world!
