Some Dude With a Canon
I met this gentleman while I was shooting at the West 23rd Street subway station. He was taking pictures of the public phone. I asked him why, and he said he liked the symmetry of the train tracks alongside the phone. I saw what he was talking about and I took pretty much the same photo he had taken. It wasn’t a shot I cared about. I then asked him if I could take his picture. The result was a photo I cared about.
