Polish photographer Dariusz Majgier has embarked upon an interesting project called Street Portraits of Strangers. He regularly walks up to complete strangers on the streets of Warsaw, and asks for permission to take their portraits in order to create a unique gallery, a photographic record of urban fashion in the 2010s. “Street portraits are intoxicating,” Majgier says. “This time roles reverse and instead of being hired by clients, this is me who has the privilege of picking those who just have that something and would agree to be photographed.” To learn more, visit the project’s website via the link below.

Although this is not a groundbreaking or unique project, there's something really special about the way Dariusz Majgier captures personality and expression.

It's exactly what Japanese fashion magazines like MONO have been doing for over 30 years. The mag would send out photo crews and get shots of random people on the street and ask them where they bought they clothes for how much and accessories, ask them who they are and what inspired them to dress like so. They never revealed the person's full identity but would photograph them head-to-toe and breakdown everything they were wearing right down to their underwear.
