Street Focus 13: The Reunions with Chris Porsz
I am pleased to share with you a conversation with my good friend and UK photographer Chris Porsz.
Chris Porsz is a paramedic by night and a street photographer by day. When he is not exploring other large European cities with his camera, he wanders tirelessly the streets of Peterborough, England in his quest to find familiar faces he photographed 30 years earlier in order to shoot a reunion. His project is quite unique and, as he is nearing his goal of 50 reunions, we sat and talked about the ones that touched him the most. For Chris, it's all about the love for mankind and the desire to record the history of his hometown one photograph at a time.
Please visit his website to see more of Chris' work and his book, watch him in action in this short film. Listen to an old episode of the Candid Frame podcast through which I discovered his work originally.
