Robert Herman is a photographer from Brooklyn who captures light and personality on the streets of New York. His light, color and sense of time out of joint is just beautiful. The past seems to live inside the present in Herman's work. Here is street photography in the tradition of Robert Frank that captures the fleeting moments of beauty and natural expression from people who are just living the moments of their lives. It is photography that requires an almost magical and instantaneous ability to see what is about to happen and frame it on the fly while trusting in the world to give you a good image. I admire this kind of talent with a camera above all others. I think this is where genius with a camera really makes itself known.
Herman is preparing a book of photographs called The New Yorkers.
Here is the photographer's web site.
