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.

Birmingham, Alabama. This man walked up to my friend and I with a lint roller and told us he was on his way to a funeral and asked if we could get the dog hair off his back. I agreed, but only if I could take his photo. It was a very strange encounter.
