The New Yorkers is a glorious look at a city bursting with colour and life. It is a body of work full of frozen moments, serendipity and reflection. Through Robert Herman s work we recognise the New York we knew and the New York we still kw today. His street photography freezes people and places in this city at decisive moments, with spontaneity and authenticity. In this book the city waves at us, looks us right in the eye and brushes past us, without seeing. It layers images upon images like the best graffiti -- always renewing and reforming itself. Features a Foreword by Sean Corocoran, Curator of Prints and Photographs, Museum of the City of New York and an Essay by Stella Kramer, Pulitzer Prize Winning Photo Editor.
