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 two years of making "five-minute friendships," I realized that the only record of friendships made were the All Star photos that I had taken. I also realized that the stories linked to the photos were long gone, and this was disappointing. Thus, I created All Star Stories to chronicle random All Stars and their owners, hoping to keep the memories alive.
