Danny Santos Video (#323) 12-06-13

I have mentioned Danny Santos in a previous blog post. He was an early member of the 100 Strangers flickr group, and received deserved notoriety.

Last week I came across a four minute YouTube video of his "faces". I find it inspirational. This text accompanies the video: "When I'm out on the streets, I often encounter faces that make me look twice; faces that stood out of the crowd without trying; faces that are out of the ordinary. They range from the exquisitely beautiful to the strangely wonderful. I started to approach the strangers for permission to take a photo of them. Some said no, but most said yes. After taking their portrait, I'd say "thank you" and walk along. I didn't ask for their names, or where they're from, or what they do... because I want the viewers to see them how I saw them: as beautiful strangers".

I am a bit surprised that he does not spend more time with each person, but that is his style.
