Triptychs of Strangers is a continuing photographic series by Adde Adesokan, where the goal is to “meet total strangers - get to know them - take three personality-matching body shots - make them one".
|The Analog Lover|
Thing that attired my attention the most about this project is, not only the great pictures he takes and the original triptych format, but the possibility of knowing more about the person who is portrayed.
Adde talks to all the people he stops, conversates with them.
|The Hungry Typograph /// The Sunday Faced Cupholder|
So the result is not just a pretty picture of someone with great style, it's a portrait, an impression of the individual and the situation the pictures were taken in.
They make it easier to imagine them, their life or their personality, even their story.
|The Prevented Smoker /// The ColorMatched|
In this post you can see some of my favourite ones.
|The Grieving Sailor /// The Player|
Every triptych features a description "About the Shot" and another one "About The Stranger"
[If you click on each picture title you'll see the original picture and its description]
