Chris Orwig: Do you mind if I take a picture with you and this stranger here? Jared Mason: No, I love people. Chris Orwig: Okay, yeah. One of the things that's so enjoyable about taking photographs out in the world is that there are so many variables. You never know what's going to happen. There is something that's interesting about bringing a stranger into the mix and in this context what I liked was just the juxtaposition of these two different types of people. Well, before the photo shoot, the day before, one of the things I noticed was that New Yorkers are just so diverse. Here was this opportunity to take advantage of that. Again bring these two guys together shoulder-to-shoulder.
And there was another interesting aspect to asking a stranger to take their photograph and that is that sometimes we get a little bit nervous or for a lot of us it's difficult to do something like that. Or let's say we don't have a camera, to just approach a stranger and start talking to them. What I've found is that if you have a camera you can use it as a little bit of an excuse or as a passport to do things that you wouldn't have otherwise done. Now had I not had my camera, had I not been doing a photo-shoot, would I've talked with that guy? Probably not. And that's what photography and that's what cameras do for us is they get us out in the world, they expose us to things that we would have otherwise missed.
