Women of Fifth Avenue

Leland Bobbé observes and records the wealthy women of the Upper East Side

“5th Avenue between 50th Street and 60th Street, home of Trump Tower, Gucci, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, Prada, Louis Vuitton and more. A playground for the rich ladies who shop and lunch. Behind their jewelry and their sunglasses these women ‘of a certain age’ seem to exist in their own bubble of leisure while the hustle and bustle of working New Yorkers and tourists swirl by. With these images my intention is to capture these woman seemingly in their own wealthy world, insulated from the rest of us.”
