In late October, 2016, I had the opportunity to travel to New York City for a week of street shooting with the amazing Tori Lee (@documentori). We averaged between 8 and 10 miles a day walking the streets and capturing life in the big city. I had recently acquired a Konica Hexar in a trade and was anxious to put it through its paces on the streets and see what it could do.
This image appeared to me and I felt it encompassed a lot of what the trip was for me. Tall buildings and lots of cars... the people... they were as varied as they were numerous. I felt this particular moment captured many stories in one frame and as I look at the image, my eyes bounce from one story to the next... just as it was walking around in the city.
The Fomapan 400 was developed in HC-110 (B) and provided a healthy grain that, to me, gives a strong character to the image. The Hexar has become a daily shooter and continues to perform well. The fixed 35mm f/2 lens is sharp and stunning in the way it renders a scene. I cannot wait to return where I will attempt some street with the Hexar's medium format cousin, the Koni-Omega Rapid!
