I made a quick video showing where I've seen the Shadowman appear as there is a lot of confusion with unlocking this achievement; How did I see him? What does he look like? Where was he? I didn't see anything, yet I got the achievement?
This achievement will pop if you don't physically *look* at the Shadowman, but appear in the general area he is in, which will make him disappear. You will know you have found him when he disappears, which makes a loud *whoosh* sound. Most likely though you'll unlock the achievement through general play, as I did; if you unlock the entire map you'll get the achievement with certainty.

Text solution where he appears

-Balcony above you in the spawn (Easy Street)
-Spawn ritual location, on the roof through the windows (right after ritual)
-Canal district, behind a red curtain, second floor in the Ruby Rabbit building
-Waterfront district, in the warehouse down by the docks
-Waterfront district, on top of the boat by the docks (right after ritual)
-Footlight district, in the Black Lace Burlesque entrance (look through main doors)
-Footlight district, on top of the kiosk outside the Black Lace Burlesque entrance (right after ritual)

Video solution

The video I made does not include all locations of the Shadowman but quite a few to get you started and know where he appears.

Note: Reports suggest that the New Xbox One experience might cause achievements to not unlock properly, including this one.
