My name is Monique Islam. I was raised in the East Los Angeles area and am currently based in the city of San Francisco. The majority of my work is shot with small film point and shoot film cameras (Olympus Stylus Epic, Minolta Hi-matic, etc). Through my work I intend to encapsulate moments in time which would otherwise go unnoticed and eventually forgotten. My work is not only a lucky snapshot of a random moment, but a tribute to the beautiful and graceful coincidences of life.
