50 Strangers - People on the street
by Hans Wendland
About the Book
I am always intrigued with the people I see and meet on the streets, who are they, where are they going, what do they do, what is happening in their life right now...
I love wandering the streets looking at people, photographing them, talking to people I have never met before, sharing an instant in a life time, realizing I will probably never see them again.
Several years ago I started to photograph people on the streets, and in this collection I have gathered some of the most interesting shots from my travels around Europe and North America.

I was born in Paris, which makes me French. I grew up in a family of painters, sculptors and art merchants. In France and Italy, I studied under the artists Gérard Ambroselli, and Antonietta Tuti where I received strong influences in impressionism and abstractionism. I was educated in Italy, France, England and finally in the United States where I lived for over twenty years. I have shown my work in the United States, South America and in Europe. For the past fifteen years in Switzerland, and now back in the United States, I have lived parallel lives, one focused on high-tech and the other focused on art, and until very recently never mixing the two. In this world of right-brain and left-brain I have found the stimulus for creating my paintings and my photographs. All of my work is based on abstract shapes and emotions I see and feel. Nature is my biggest driver.
