I go around by myself in the dead of night, but after straying into some gang territory in Venice, California, I learnt my lesson. Now, if I’m unsure of the area, I take my boyfriend with me. We go to San Francisco a lot, as the fog is pretty much guaranteed. I was there a couple of years ago and got a bit snap-happy when I saw the brightly lit office blocks at sunset.”

“Unsurprisingly, people often assume that you’re up to no good if you’re prowling the backstreets at night with a camera. When I took the shot of the deserted parking lot, at a port in Los Angeles, I was constantly being stopped by guards, even though I had an official pass. So my main advice would be this: if you haven’t got an assistant, take your partner. It’s safer, less suspicious – and at least they’ll be having fun.” Amanda Friedman
