One shot interview with Graham Long 



What made you push the shutter button to capture this image?



This 'one shot' was literally just that - i had been wandering around the Barbican estate one Sunday afternoon, which if anyone who knows, is a warren of corridors and brutalist architecture - and if i'm honest, i needed the loo so went inside the Barbican building itself and on the way out, coming down the glass staircase, the sun was just right casting shadows on the patio area below and i snapped just two quick shots, as others were behind me on the stairs. 


Is this image part of a wider project, if so what is the projects focus?

No its a one off and quite far removed from my usual style. 



Why is this image special to you?


Because its probably been my most successful image across all social media - even though i never really rated it, but whenever i post it, it has huge accolades from fellow street photographers and been awarded "Image of the Day/Week/Year" on social sites  so much so i have also entered it now, into the Lens Culture 2020 Contest in Street Photography genre. 


Is there any photography books that inspired you to capture this image?  


No, i don't tend to read or own many photography books - there are many and varied photographers out there who all have their own style. i  tend to look at web sites and instagram for inspiration rather than books - I'm on the Admin Team on a Vivian Maier Facebook Group and have been to two exhibitions of her work - i love the fact she was unknown and unheard of until she died - so maybe my time will come  . . . .  



What camera are you currently using? 

I only have a bridge camera - Canon SX60 HS or my iPhone 



Please tell us about yourself

I'm 51 years old hobbyist street photographer, who uses getting out on the streets with my camera as stress release, from the day job, where i am a Manager for a local authority responsible for Town Centre Management and Markets in North Kent.
