Photographer Richard Renaldi Gets Strangers To Pose As Friends, Family or Lovers

Here's an interesting take on portrait photography. New York photographer Richard Renaldi finds random people on the streets of NYC, none of whom know each other, and he poses them as if they were intimately involved as couples, good friends or family. It's quite fascinating what he comes up with.

The subjects are only asked to look like they are showing a brief amount of affection, but the facial expressions and body language within the photos make it seem like these strangers not only know each other, but also share some sort of genuine bond.

Steve Hartman from "On The Road" films Renaldi at work.
