Sophie - stranger #1 / by Nigel Rumsey

Berwick Street, London

I started the year determined not to let my photography drift so much as it has been, to work on one or two projects throughout the year. I've started with 100 Strangers, a project where the photographer has to approach strangers ask if they can take their portrait, learn a little about them and engage with the subject.

This is Sophie, after initially thinking I was weird, she was very cool about the whole thing, she is my first stranger (a fact I didn't disclose at the time). Sophie worked locally and was taking a break from her day. I gave her my card so hopefully she'll checkout the shot on my web site.

Nikon F3, Kodak Tri-X, HC-110
