Tim is a former New York Times photojournalist who succumbed to conspiratorial paranoia and the often inherent eccentricity that goes along with this profession. He now dumpster dives for treasures in rich neighborhoods and refuses to own a cell phone or any kind of digital technology for fear of being tracked by the U.S. government. When I ran into him at 15th and South streets in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood of Philadelphia he was on his way to return a piece of mail to its proper recipient in hopes of receiving a cigarette or another form of compensation from her on January 29, 2012.
