During the summer of 2011, Laurel Nakadate began to photograph strangers, inviting friends of friends, Facebook “friends,” and curious members of the online community, to meet her at night in remote corners of the United States and Europe. Under darkened skies, using simple techniques including long exposures, available starlight, moonlight, and a single handheld flashlight, Nakadate created “Star Portraits”, a series of photographic performances that recorded the urgency of first encounters between the artist and her subjects.
