Stranger A Day - 2004

Roark Johnson is a photographer in Chicago. Since January 1, he's been taking photographs of strangers and posting them on his photoblog.

The photographs are compelling and even though these ARE strangers there is an comfortable familiarity about the faces in his images. They are all of us. I started looking and I couldn't stop. I keep going back to the site to see more.

I am humbled by the creativity of people. Johnson saw the specialness in each face and captured it to share with us. Is art discovered or created? Maybe here the art is just a good story well told. You can't have one without the other.
