30 Strangers

This project by Justin Hackworth is very moving to me. This is how he explains it.

What is "30 Strangers"?

It's the name of my latest photography project. It works like this. For the entire month of June, 2008, I will make a portrait of one person each day. Ideally, these will be people I do not know--strangers. They don't have to remain strangers, of course, and it's going to be great to meet a lot of new people.
These portraits are so honest. They force me not to judge people based on my first impression. Below the photos of each person he writes a tag line that describes the person in some way. I've posted a few of my favorites, but you need to visit here to see the rest.
