A Photographer Asked Strangers To Pose With Each Other While Touching

We're not going to tell you anything new when we say that the pandemic has changed our way of life and the way we interact with one another. We are more likely than ever to keep our distance from one another today. It appears that we must relearn how to interact with others. While it may not be difficult for some, it may be difficult for others.

Richard Renaldi is a photographer from New York, USA, who came up with the idea for the "Touching Strangers" photo series. The artist began this project in 2007 and finished it in 2013, long before the chaos caused by Covid erupted. The photographs show strangers interacting physically while posing together. The portraits are affectionate and intimate, prompting us to consider the distance and boundaries we set for one another, especially in these trying times.
