36 Total Strangers

Very few of  my shots have people in them and this point was noted by Kyle 
Cassidy. I waffled  some excuse about British reserve and Kyle?s solution 
was to 
set me a project  where I had to get 36 shots (1 roll of film - remember 
film?) of total  strangers. The theory being that it would cure me once and 
all of my  personal discomfort at the prospect of sticking a camera in a 
strangers face. He  laid down some rules on equipment (no telephoto lenses), 
(no parades)  and I had to ask permission before taking the shot. With these 
in mind I loaded  a roll of film and set out on the project. One roll of 
proved to be a  little over optimistic and it took me eighteen months to get 
all thirty six  :-)
