I’ve been thinking about starting a little project – a project to document the people in my life. Not the obvious close people though – all the miscellaneous people we all interact with but don’t really know at all. People like your waitress at a restaurant, the person who cuts your hair, the attendant at the gas station.
It reminds me of the old “6 degrees of Kevin Bacon” game, so maybe I should call it the “One Degree Project”. Here’s the draft rules I think I’ll start with:
- You have to talk to the person, no shots of random people in the mall, on the train, etc.
- Take a photo of the person with their consent. (Preferably in context.)
- The photo has to be labeled with a first name and a description of the context.
