LA art duo Friends With You have released a new book spanning the last several years of their globe-trotting mission to,”affect world culture by cultivating special moments of spiritual awareness and powerful, joyous interaction.” Hippies. After watching ‘seen everything’ New Yorkers bouncing around like a bunch of 4-year-olds in the installation near the High Line last year, I’d say Friends With You is on the right track. 

We did a little Q&A with photographer Pat O’Rourke who snapped this newest installment of Classic & Family.  

Where are you hailing from?
PO: I live in downtown Toronto. 

What was your first camera?
PO: I used to shoot on a variety of different cameras when I first got more into taking photographs. Pretty much whatever I could find from the thrift store that worked. The Olympus Stylus was a stand out camera for me around that time.
