Coming Soon

Familiar Strangers are everywhere. 

I’m sitting at Ike & Jane right now, sipping on my iced coffee and I’m surround by people I recognize but don’t know.  The basic idea of the familiar stranger refers to the people we see often but don’t interact with.  They fill our urban landscape, but we remain isolated.  I came across the artist António Jorge Gonçalves who sketches people he encounters on the subway.  Who are the familiar strangers in your life?
