Contextual Interviewing

New York Times asks readers to submit photographs documenting moments in one day

New York City was treated to an unimpeachably lovely day on Monday, the first day of summer. To celebrate, we asked New York Instagrammers to document their day and share #NYTSummerDay photos with us. For @turnaroundcancel, the scars of a summer day became a fashion statement. “I love the way that New Yorkers put themselves out there in the summer,” he told @nytimes. “Everything — everybody, rather — is on display, and it often feels like there’s nowhere to hide from the sun and its heat. It’s going to get you one way or another, so when it does, wear it! Even an unfortunate sunburn can be turned into a fashion statement, although next time I’d suggest more sunscreen." #regram from @turnaroundcancel. #nytweekender
