The escalators in Central help you along the climb from the waterfront to the bars in this bustling area of the island. At each platform you are greeted with a new set of bars, restaurants and shops. It’s considered the longest covered escalator system in the world and it provides great people watching opportunities along the way.

@rhiannon_adam here posting on the #francescamaffeogallery #IGtakeover ! And now for something a little different.... .

This one was taken on the first walk that @laurapannack and I ever took, to East Tilbury. I had contacted Laura about putting on a show of her #youngbritishnaturists project in the gallery that I used to curate for. Laura called up the gallery one day with an odd proposal, she suggested that we meet up at Liverpool St and pick a random destination. We ended up in East Tilbury, bleak but quite inspiring. Laura didn’t shoot many Polaroids back then - but we swapped cameras a lot that day and she loved it too. We made an accidental double exposure on my #Polaroid #camera and decided to make a project out of it, one that is still to be completed!

On our walk we rounded a corner and found a group of girls on a small row of estate housing. We asked one of their mums who was leaning out of the window if we could take their pictures. With the affirmative, we walked to an open expanse of concrete 100 yards from their houses at the end of the road that met a field. One girl was on crutches, one had rollerblades on and had a dog with her, and then there was this girl, Charlotte, who was quieter than the rest. I quickly snapped her picture - there are many things that bother me about this image. The top of her head is too close to the roof of the building, there is a slight softness to it, etc. But I knew this picture would have been completely different if I had been able to take two. The action of pulling a Polaroid out of the camera breaks the moment, the minute wait time to see the image in order to correct mistakes changes the dynamic. You have one hit at it quite often.... on the train back Laura and I poured over our Polaroid spoils, and apart from our double exposure, this was my favourite from that day, which turned out to be the beginning of so much more. #friendship #thewalks #peelapart #photographingstrangers #instantfilm #instantphotography

“O jogo é uma analogia para a vida: não existem cadeiras suficientes ou bons tempos para andar por aí, nem comida suficiente, nem divertimento suficiente, nem camas nem empregos nem risos nem amigos nem sorrisos nem dinheiro nem ar limpo para respirar… e no entanto a música continua.” #stevejobs #ojogocontinua #instabw #blackwhite #praiano #photography #photos_ssa #fotosbahia #espaçodoleitorcorreio #bnwsoul #photographingstrangers #braziliangallery

I shot this street portrait in 2008 in the San Telmo neighborhood of Buenos Aires. I was there visiting my grandmother and showing work at an art fair. One morning before I went to the exhibit I went for a walk with my camera like I did almost daily back home when I was living in Manhattan. It was a meditative, therapeutic process for me to walk the streets and take photos of everything from my feet on the sidewalk to shadows to people like this man having a smoke on his front stoop. Like so many happy accidents this photo chose me because I was in the right place at the right time. I looked up, we looked at each other, I raised my camera, he nodded and I focused and clicked. The photo later went on to be published in Popular Photography and has easily become one of my favorite images. I'm going to start sharing more from my archives on here. I think it's a good exercise for me to see the evolution of my work and process and also it's inspiring me to get back out there and do what I always loved to do. I also love getting and answering questions so please don't hesitate to DM me or ask in the comments. Stay inspired and keep going and growing, friends. Happy Friday! ⚫️⚪️📷#monicashulmanphotostories #monicashulmanarchives #monicashulmanstudio #streetphotography #blackandwhiteonly
