Richard Renaldi: Touching Strangers

This CBS video by Steve Hartman shows a unique project by photographer Richard Renaldi called Touching Strangers. Renaldi started the project on 2007 by asking complete strangers to physically interact while posing together for a portrait. Renaldi used a large format 8-by-10 view camera and moved across several towns and cities all over the United States (the video above was shot in NYC).

Earlier this year the project was turned into a successful kickstarter project raising over $80k for a book with pictures from the project.
