About this title

Synopsis:

Since 2007, Richard Renaldi has been working on a series of photographs that involve approaching and asking complete strangers to physically interact while posing together for a portrait. Working on the street with a large format 8-by-10-inch view camera, Renaldi encounters the subjects for his photographs in towns and cities all over the United States. He pairs them up and invites them to pose together, intimately, in ways that people are usually taught to reserve for their close friends and loved ones. Renaldi creates spontaneous and fleeting relationships between strangers for the camera, often pushing his subjects beyond their comfort levels. These relationships may only last for the moment the shutter is released, but the resulting photographs are moving and provocative, and raise profound questions about the possibilities for positive human connection in a diverse society.

About the Author:

Richard Renaldi received his high school diploma from Saint Ignatius College Prep in 1986. He graduated from New York University with a BFA in photography in 1990. Renaldi has had solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad, and is represented by Bonni Benrubi Gallery, New York. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections. Touching Strangers is Renaldi’s third book, following Figure and Ground (Aperture, 2006) and Fall River Boys (2009). Renaldi’s fourth book, Manhattan Sunday (Aperture, 2016) is forthcoming.
