They piled in my car, snapped a photo, and they were off to the next objective. They did give me $20 for my 30 seconds of time, so it was perhaps my most lucrative Lyft ever!”

It’s Stepford photography that serves the needs of consumption. It kills emotion, opinions and social values. It’s normal.”
