Taking photos of Converse All Stars began as a photo project in April of 2015. Along the way, I made many "five-minute" friends as I took photos of All Stars during my travels. After three years of making "five-minute friendships," I realized that the only record of friendships made were the Converse All Star photos that I had taken. I also realized that the stories linked to the photos were slipping away, and this was disappointing. Thus, I established All Star Stories in February of 2018 to chronicle random All Stars and their owners, hoping to keep the memories alive. By the way, this pair of "I Love NY" All Stars are mine. This is a selfie that I took in Budapest.
