In his series The Women Of Fifth Avenue, photographer Leland Bobbé explores the most expensive shopping street in New York City to uncover the quirky and interesting women who love to spend their time there.

Taking close-ups of a very particular type of woman, he said: "Fifth Avenue, between 50th street and 60th street; home of Trump Tower, Gucci, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Prada, Luis Vuitton and more; a playground for the rich, ladies who shop and lunch.

"Behind their jewellery 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."
