"In the 1980s, @janet_delaney visited New York regularly from the West Coast, taking photos of the streets and the people. Then, she didn't look at her images for almost 3 decades. A few years ago, @janet_delaney, now 63, revisited her photos, and found a #NewYork that may have existed only in her camera: characters who commanded center stage in their own urban dramas. "Taking the photographs was exhilarating," she said. "It's how I look, how I experience a place. Photography is like owning something. Some people shop; I take pictures. I look around and say, 'I want that policeman on the corner.'" @janet_delaney took this photo in the early morning on the Staten Island Ferry in 1985.
