J: How do you choose the characters?
Ph: They come from the fringes of society…people that escape notice but are nevertheless the paragons of society.

J: The guy with the umbrella, the newspaper and the cellular phone in New York, how is he a paragon of society?
Ph: He is every thing that everybody would want to be in that area-this is 5th Ave. and 52nd St. in Manhattan-this guy epitomized this whole thing.
