Fine-art photographer Susan Barnett took to the streets of New York City recently to ask over 900 people to pose and have the back of their t-shirts photographed. Above is a sampling of some of the most interesting ones she encountered. Says Barnett: “My success rate has been almost 100 percent but sometimes I am given short shrift. One t-shirt read ‘A t-shirt can change the world!’ I really liked that one but ironically that fellow refused to stop!” Barnett used her 49-year-old Leicaflex SL2 camera with 35mm Ektar and Portra Vivid Color film to get the shots.
