Stranger Tides examines the boundaries created within society, and the concept of the 'stranger'. It is common to ignore others and forming connections is often difficult. The project focuses on individuals across various shorelines, who agreed to be photographed when approached. Through consent, this shifted the person's status as 'stranger'. These portraits give an insight into an individual's life for a brief moment of time, and they obscure and reveal their presentation of self. Portrayed in front of a minimal seascape, we are confronted with questions about who these people are, how they choose to spend their time, and how they present themselves.
