When I moved to New York, I just wanted to work on film sets. But most of my jobs weren't on set so much as outside it, asking passersby not to walk through the shot. This taught me how film sets work, which times of day pedestrians are the most pissed off - and how to appreciate the light hitting a landscape at a particular time of day. Even if that landscape is Times Square on a summer day or a Staten Island street by a syringe exchange.
And it taught me how to appreciate landscapes like these that are prettier than a Staten Island street by a syringe exchange.
I wouldn't really feel comfortable taking photos by a syringe exchange.
