Curtain Road is a prime location for viewing street art in the Shoreditch area of East London.
Curtain Road is a very popular place for street artists. Their work can be seen on walls, doors, and shutters on both sides of the road. You’ll sometimes see faux-graffiti advertising take over some of the featured spaces used by the street artists, but it usually doesn’t take much time for the graffiti artists to take it back. It makes for another interesting battle in the street art scene.

In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles.

MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event.

Stop bath is a type of chemical used in the darkroom for processing black and white film, aptly named as such because it halts the development of the images. In this case, stop bath is also part of the title that Korean analogue street photographer <b><a href="http://instagram.com/sooeatsyourstreetforbreakfast">Soomin Yim</a></b> has given her body of work, "Stop Bath the City," to represent the forgotten faces of people in the city amid rapid modernization, captured and immortalized on black and white film.
