I returned home from New York City with almost 100 Fuji Instax photographs and they are perfect little glimpses of the streets of NYC. I love how Instax, like Polaroids, give a raw sense of the moment the photographs were taken, as if a little piece of time is preserved in that little piece of emulsion.
It was a hot, hot, hot summer in New York City and a tiny piece of the bright summer sun and the streets of New York are apparent in these Fuji Instax photos.
I must say that I fell instantly in love with New York City, its streets, its people, its parks, and its presence. I thought when I first arrived that I would feel like I was on a movie set and that it would all seem surreal. Instead, it all felt so real, vibrant, raw, and highly energised. There was always something happening somewhere, and most likely at least five things you wanted to see, do or be involved in, were happening at the exact same time on different corners of the island and her boroughs.
The city skyline that stretches out along Manhattan, the bridges that bring in and take away people from the busy inner city, yellow school buses, amazing bookstores, cafes, parks to gather or lose one’s self in, local village papers to read, skyscrapers to climb and to peer over the top of in search of that everlasting view of the city that never sleeps.
