This activity, devised by photographer Ronya Galka, invites you to reflect on the work of photographer Helen Levitt.

Riding a bus or tram, you’re invited to create a set of candid portraits. You’ll get to tell your very own ‘street stories’ by taking photographs of the people and scenarios that grab your attention outside the bus window. 

The activity is created in the context of the major retrospective Helen Levitt: In the Street at The Photographers’ Gallery.
