Yesterday we noticed someone had posted one of our videos of Dan Milnor on their blog. Not an unusual occurrence, but something told us we should check this blog out. And we’re glad we did. The blogger is one Jonas Norman, a filmmaker and street photographer from Denmark. His site, Sidewalktalk, is a remarkably fascinating look into his street portraiture project:
Every face tells a story. And every story is worth telling. Sidewalktalk is my way of telling a story. I take photos of people I meet in the streets and post the pictures here on my website for them to see and use for free. Most people I ask for a picture find it interesting and want me to take their picture. Some don’t in the beginning, but after we talk they usually allow me to shoot their portrait.
A big fan of film (you can see his cameras on his blog), he also wields a Canon 5D and Leica M9. He made a gorgeous video about his Sidewalk portraiture project. Sit back, put on your headphones, and watch this in full-screen. It’s a nice one.
