Ivan Cash Asks New Yorkers About Their ‘Last Photo’

San Francisco-based interactive artist, independent creative and Miami Ad School SF instructor Ivan Cash (who you may remember from his October talk “Reality is Malleable”) went around New York asking strangers what the last photo on their phone was, and its backstory, for a project called “Last Photo – New York.” The results are sometimes surprising, and often reveal a lot about the personalities behind the photos. It makes for an interesting look at the the citizens of the Big Apple (kind of like Humans of New York) and peoples’ relationships with their camera phones.

Some highlights include a photo of cat shit, a dude playing Guitar Hero naked while lying on a bean bag, a broken lamp and a duct-taped gingerbread house. “Last Photo – New York” is also probably the only place you’ll hear, “I’m over there with the cucumber water and all of that shit” — which is something I wish I heard more often.

“Last Photo – New York” is part of an ongoing series that also includes Los Angeles and San Francisco. We’re just glad Cash didn’t talk to Anthony Weiner. You can check out his “Last Photo- LA” installment after the jump.
