Into the minds of strangers

"Ever wonder what that guy standing in front of you at Starbucks is thinking as he grabs his grande double mocha java latte and dashes out the door? Or that girl on the subway with the faraway stare--what's floating through her mind as she gazes out the window?"

"Over a period of three months, the 28-year-old Danish photographer stopped random passersby on the streets of Copenhagen and New York City and asked them what they were thinking just before he intercepted them."

"He labeled his endeavor "The Thought Project: Life-Snaps by Simon Hoegsberg," and posted 55 of the 150 portraits and thoughts he collected on his Web site. He labels his subjects by number only--no name, age, no location, just random musings ranging from the mundane to the poetic and philosophical."
