This is Antonio. I ran into him today while on route to the gym. He had just finished up his workout and was leaving but was kind enough to let me take a few shots of him. He caught my attention because, to me, he looks like a character from the "Madchester" scene (a hip music scene in Manchester in the late 80s). Perhaps a member of Joy Division or Happy Mondays. His heritage is interesting to say the least with a Cuban mother and a Hungarian father. Turns out he is not a member of a hip band but a professor at Duke University where he teaches American literature and psychoanalysis which certainly impressed this psych major. He got his Phd from University of Pennsylvania in English and has authored several books.
Antonio is #28 in my 100 Strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at
