Lady Cab Drivers

Cab drivers, seemingly without question, carry around plenty of stories to tell. You can bet a cab fare, that if you see a cab driver talking on their cellphone, their more than likely telling a story.

Diana Diroy, a New York photographer, videographer, and documentary filmmaker living in New York City considers herself a visual storyteller. Diroy discovered a story that she made into a documentary short, called “What’s a Girl Doing Here?

The ten minute short film follows two New York female cab drivers, Elena Tenchikova and Shonna Valeska around New York city telling their stories as female cab drivers.
