“Touching Strangers” is a brilliant on-going photo series by Richard Renaldi. Complete strangers are asked to pose together with the stipulation that they must touch each other in some manner.
This is comedy, such a good concept.
haha, really good work!
The hand on #3, and the fist on #4…the faces of the people on all of them. amazing pictures!
This is classic. Sick skirt third photo down &all photos look natural.
You can just see the tension in each persons face, very funny. Great Concept.
Awkward… but intimate at the same time…
third one is great, but the first one is most definitely my favorite.

The first one and the last two are my faves!
I agree with Shea, it just shows how much we are afraid of unknown people or people who we know but we do not love… I loved this!
I love it. Such a fantastic concept.
this is great! i want to see more. . .fourth one down is my favorite!
I love how in the last photo, the two people are in total contrast
sucha good idea, its weird how comfortable some of the strangers look posing with each other.
Awesome proyect, the third photograph speak for it self!Work with a lot of meaning..
Wow. Now that’s inspirational. Weirdly, the ones where there’s an arm flung around the back but without the hand touching the shoulder are the ones I feel most awkward looking at, but at the same time the ones that make me look and laugh.
miranda july & harrell fletcher did something similar in Learning To Love You More:
the tasks were for amateurs though. these photographs are beautiful!
i would love to touch the photographer
Is it just me, or do most of these people just look hella awkward. I do like the picture at the top, because they look the least akward.
wow! I just love it! And I like the awkwardness, its really honest. Refreshing.

VERY interesting experiment. Love the pictures. You can see how some people are fairly comfortable around strangers and others are completely tensed up.
love it, so meaningful, touch to other, touch to other’s mind for understanding to eachother, then we can be the one world…

Great concept! Very thought provoking work. Even the viewer feels a bit awkward at first, can’t wait to see what comes next.
