It’s one of those days when you surf through the Net with no purpose, reading bits here and there, following one link after the other while checking your Twitter timeline to see if any one of your contacts has posted something interesting. And then you stumble upon a website and you stay there, devouring all its contents, and cherishing the joy of this new discovery.
In his Sidewalktalk project, photographer and filmmaker Jonas Normann take portraits of the people he meets on the street. His concept is beautifully described as Life Photography. And you can surely feel life coming out of his pictures and videos.
Every face tells a story. And every story is worth telling. Sidewalktalk is my way of telling a story. [..] I get to know new people everyday from every walks of life and that’s what drives me to do what I’m doing. It’s an addiction. I get to know people who under other circumstances would have never talked to me.
We do love stories, and we have immediately fallen in love with Sidwalktalk. Take your time to look at the photographs and soak into the stories they tell. And don’t forget to take a look at his videos (the Onkel A video made me want to jump on an airplane and go to Denmark just to try this cafeteria!).
Happy new discovery!
