Brief Encounters is a collection of people I have met. Maybe our paths crossed for a mere 15 seconds or maybe for a more substantial 15 minutes. Nevertheless, the encounters were all brief. Some people told me their life story, others didn't even reveal their name. It depended on the day, my mood, the weather, the country, the language, my surroundings, and everything really. It depended on the person. It always depends on the person.

My roommate and I stopped Victor Caulfield on the streets of Florence to make his photo. He seemed to know the locals and told us that he had just modeled for a painter. He was actually from Australia and told us about his travels to America when he was younger.
