Mysterious People explores the tension in our curious reality. The moments when we find ourselves looking and looking again, asking, “Did that just happen?” Or maybe even, “Did the camera see something that I didn’t?”
Mysterious People observes those blurry lines, exploring the relationship between people and mystery, and how they simultaneously influence each other. What sort of peculiarities do chance and fate bring to people, to a scene, to expose the beautiful oddness of our existence? Conversely, what personality traits and quirks of behavior do we as humans contribute to the mystery of our experience. Does the photographer have a hand in the mystery by pressing the button at a particular time?
