Everyday People, de Pablo Conejo Pascual


"Everyday People" is a project of portraits of unknown people contacted an anonymous way. The project participants respond to a notice published on a website or posters on the street, where just offer photograph whoever responds and how who decide for an art project.

Anyone interested in participating is welcome and can express whatever they want with complete freedom. Each participant has a personal and different motivation to respond to the announcement.

Thus I reverse the usual relationship between photographer-model, being, in this case, the model who runs the photo shoot.

I'm interested in exploring the nature of a fleeting encounter between strangers. Paradoxically, the fact that a session between strangers does not prevent arises an intimate relationship in which the participant is in the photograph a channel of expression to the lens of a stranger.

The project has been developed mainly in London and currently continues to develop in Madrid.                                                                                                                                 www.pabloconejo.com
