Stranger #1: Khalif


Khalif is my first stranger in the 100 Strangers Project I’ve just embarked on. I found Khalif at Festivale in Launceston and knew from the first moment I saw him that I wanted to take his photo. Two hours later I approached him, promised I wasn’t a stalker, then proceeded to follow him (without him realising it) for another hour until I got this shot.

Despite how it might appear from his name, Khalif is from New Zealand, and has no Middle Eastern heritage. His mum found his name in a Persian rug store!

I couldn’t have asked for a nicer first stranger.
