General Photography

“This is a picture I did not take of a train conductor who approached me and asked, ‘are you a terrorist?’ and then explained (while keeping his distance) that a few passengers were scared because they’d seen me taking a photograph of the train, and that he ‘had to check and see’ what I was up to. […] While this may not be a picture of a train conductor who was just doing his job, or of the scared Americans who believe that a man on a train platform with an antique camera and a cable release is a terrorist, it is a picture of the sad, desperate, hate-filled state of my country’s paranoia, which, with each televisable missive from that little house on the prarie of Pennsylvania Avenue, is turning its citizens into fear-based automatons that only respond to what’s on cable, (as long as it’s a station owned by Rupert Murdoch).” - Unphotographable
