BTS: Richard Renaldi Introduces & Poses Complete Strangers on the Streets of NYC

Photographer Richard Renaldi‘s 6-year-long project Touching Strangers has been an incredible success. From viral Internet fame to a full-fledged photo book that exceeded its Kickstarter goal eight times over, there’s something profoundly moving about complete strangers posed together, sometimes quite intimately, on the streets of NYC.

Behind the Scenes with Brandon Stanton and His Humans of New York Project

When we first covered Brandon Stanton and his Humans of New York project almost a year and a half ago, he had accumulated about 3,000 portraits of people from around New York City.

BTS: Making Epic Advertising Composites with Erik Almas

08152013_0058

KFC Restaurants recently opened a new concept store in Louisville, Kentucky called KFC eleven. (The “eleven” being a tribute to the 11 herbs and spices in KFC’s original recipe chicken). The new store has a distinctly modern look, and is far from the red and white color palette made popular by Colonel Sanders.

The new concept required a new direction for the photography as well. KFC eleven’s creative agency, (Creative Alliance) asked us to help them create the visual feel for this new brand.
