20 Times This Photographer Asked Strangers To Pose Together By Physically Touching Each Other

Published 8 months ago

Since the pandemic has forced us to follow social distancing rules, the last few years have been tough for many people who thrive on social interaction. After all, we humans are social animals and we all crave love and hugs.

There are many ways to express love and physical touch is one of them. Although some people may find touching a stranger weird, those who are open to this type of love find it extremely comforting.

Richard Renaldi, a photographer from New York, roams around the streets of the USA and asks strangers to pose by physically touching each other. The photo series “Touching strangers” is quite heartwarming and expresses the power of physical touch beautifully. Check out some of his best works in the gallery below.
