Conversations with Strangers
"Conversations with Strangers" is an exhibit of portraits taken across the US, from rural New Mexico to New York City, but mainly in northwest Indiana. DiBiase engages subjects directly and makes photos during these conversations, which may last a couple minutes or several days. Endlessly fascinated by faces, eyes, and texture, DiBiase seems equally curious about what two strangers choose to share with one another – how quickly trust can develop, or how guarded we can each be. DiBiase’s images are a product of these brief relationships between two strangers – the photographer and his or her subject.
