The New Yorkers According to Robert Herman

Robert_Herman_NY

Since the late seventies Robert Herman has been taking pictures of New York and its inhabitants.

He uses Kodachrome which gives the pictures, some of which are taken as late as 2005, an old school cool and vibrancy.

Like a lot of street photographers Herman talks of how taking pictures helps him bond with his community and it is definitely true that most of the time we walk through even the most familiar places as if we were blind. A camera can truly open up your eyes and senses and help you connect with the world in a whole new way.
