Street Portrait in Penang, Malaysia

Shooting street portraits is probably one of the most intimidating assignment for a photographer to do because it requires self-confidence and the personality to be able to walk up to complete strangers without being too fixated on the possibility of being rejected. You can instantly tell whether a photographer has these traits based on their street work and Chris Sorensen’s portraits from his most recent trip to Penang, Malaysia is without question some remarkable stuff. I love the level of intimacy in every single frame.
