Photographed are "strangers" Randi and Asbjorn from Levanger, Norway. During my time abroad, I was on assignment in Stockholm to ask a stranger on the street to take their photo for my studio. This photo was meaningful to me because I was able to overcome my fear of photographing strangers. The Scandinavian people revealed to be extremely kind people during my time there after breaking through their outward, harder exterior. "Strangers" represents the openness and happiness of the culture found beneath what they display in public.
