Talking to Strangers: Shop Edition

For my first edition of the Talking to Strangers project, I took to the shops of Cardiff to chat to some people whilst they we're at work. They were all surprised at the questions I'd asked, so out of the ordinary compared to the autopilot conversations they'd usually have. I feel like nowadays if you don’t know somebody it’s just not a thing to make the effort to talk and get to know them. Especially when in and out of shops, always in such Everybody is so distant, despite being guilty of stalking strangers once in a while online. It’s interesting to see that we’re not all that different and can relate with one another in lots of ways.

Being the first time going out to take photographs of people and talk to them, I was extremely nervous. That is the reason it took me so long to get going with the project. However I found it quite easy chatting to people and they were often just as nervous as me, which made me wonder what I was even nervous about to begin with. The thought of rejection had me worried, but I probably got rejected more times than I was successful but you gotta keep trying lol.

Hope you like xxxx
