Strangers of Salem

Bricks and mortar, coffee and cars. Our town is not too different from any other. However it is the human contact that makes our town unique. These faces of strangers we walk beside and stand in line with, the brief exchange of glances with them, are what interest me most of all. It is where they are heading and where they dream to go that attracts my lens. Can we unlock their secrets, their history and their stories? These are the Strangers of Salem.

Jessica Ramey, a forensic craftologist and creative reuse founder (DIY Studio), photographs the streets of Salem to uncover stories in the most unlikely of places.
