Portraits of Strangers Found Through Craigslist


For their ongoing “Craigslist Encounters,” the Los Angeles-based photography team Kremer Johnson has been shooting portraits of completely strangers who are each found using Craigslist. Each subject responded to an ad titled “Characters Wanted” and agreed to pose for $20 an hour.

Fstoppers writes that photographers Neil Kremer and Cory Johnson have posted the ad three times so far, and each time it goes up they receive about 70 to 100 responses.

The photographers have shot portraits of about 30 people so far, and they’re aiming to photograph over 100 more in the upcoming year.

Each subject is interviewed to determine a portrait location that’s meaningful to them.

You can find more work by Kremer Johnson on their website and on Ello.
