9780615734910: The New Yorkers

The New Yorkers is a glorious look at a city bursting with color and life. It is a body of work full of frozen moments, serendipity and reflection. Through Robert Herman s work we recognize the New York we knew and the New York we still know today. His street photography freezes people and places in this city at decisive moments, with spontaneity and authenticity. In The New Yorkers 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. Stella Kramer, Pulitzer prize-Winning Photo Editor.

The New Yorkers is Robert Herman s astounding collection of photographs of New York City, shot between 1978-2005 on Kodachrome. The book immortalizes the transformation of Soho, Little Italy, Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side. These photos tell an authentic story of New York City: real New Yorkers living and working in their own neighborhoods. In Herman s bold use of light and composition, he effectively transforms everyday subject matter into vibrant, emotion-filled images. But beyond the stunning photography, it also tells another story: that of Herman s battle with bipolar disorder. A physical representation of the empathy Herman had for his subjects while struggling with his own sense of outsiderness is what makes The New Yorkers of interest to all who know and love the city as well as those who want to know it. Foreword by Sean Corcoran, Curator of Prints and Photographs, Museum of the City of New York; introduction by Stella Kramer, Pulitzer Prize Winning Photo Editor; afterward by the author.

Through the lens of my camera, my vulnerability met theirs at the moment of exposure: a photograph of someone whose heart is open to a stranger's camera says more about a New Yorker than I ever can in say in words. Robert Herman.

What makes these photographs exceptional is Herman's openness to happenstance. He has the ability to recognize his subjects against a particular backdrop, a storefront window, a sign in the background, or even the body language of a passerby, and to frame it in a revealing way...It is this confluence of time, place, keen photographic vision, and a fiercely personal engagement to subject that makes these images so special. Sean Corcoran, Museum of the City of New York Curator of Prints and Photographs.

About the Author:

"Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his days as an NYU film student back in the late 70's. Using his father's Nikon F and a 50mm lens, he began by exploring the city as a means to connect with the people in his neighborhood and learn the craft of making images. His photos of New York City, shot between 1978-2005 on Kodachrome, are now collected in his first monograph: The New Yorkers. His work is part of the permanent collections of the George Eastman House and the Telfair Museum in Savannah, GA. His photographs are also in many private collections including Westin and Marriott Hotels. In 2011, images from The New Yorkers were exhibited at the Istanbul Photography Museum. Most recently, his solo exhibition "A Waking Dream was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in Cartagena, Columbia. He has a BFA in Filmmaking from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and received his Masters in Digital Photography from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. His love of light and color, and making images that find the transcendent in the seemingly mundane, continues to this day.

Review:

These vibrant color photographs celebrate the daily parade of life and color and light on the streets of New York as only a true artist and longtime New Yorker can capture. This book is a remarkable time capsule and a reminder of the rich vitality of street photography. The saturated colors make us long for the days of Kodachrome film... Highly recommended. --Lens Culture-Jim Casper

Robert Herman's The New Yorkers is as much an historical document as it is art. It records a time in American history both by showing what people and culture looked like in the early 1980s and by presenting an aesthetic of that time. In the age of cell phone cameras, where imaging has become conversation, it is easy to forget the relative rarity of well made photographs from the last century. Unlike today, in 1982 a camera on the street drew attention making Herman s captures all the more pure for the lack of posturing for the camera. Robert Herman s collection is easily compared to the now exalted work, The Americans by Robert Frank. Herman s work is not imitative as much as it is a reaction to or micro-view of New York through the narrative style that Frank brought to photography. Certainly Herman knew of Frank s work when he was making the photographs in The New Yorkers, but in 1980 The Americans had not gotten the full universal acceptance and regard it developed in the last twenty years, becoming a basic text for street photographers. Walker Evans influenced Frank. Frank influenced Herman. All of this would be interesting, albeit unimportant, if Herman s photographs did not stand alone. They do. The 128-page collection shows us a New York that is fading in memory. His photographs take us into corners and alleys that were not preserved by the recorded media of the day. His vision is to capture those small, everyday things that define and describe the time. He sees and records the nuances of life that his contemporaries walked right by, often turning their heads to avoid seeing. Anyone who spent time in New York in the early 1980s will see truth in these images rarely described by history. The images are honest in a way only photographs made before Photoshop can be. Herman uses light and shadow to create tension and reveal the mood of the New York street. His frequent capturing of reflections and glances caught through windows or just beyond moving pedestrians gives the still photographs the active feel of a city on the move. Closed Sunday, brings to mind Hopper s Nighthawks, but in an even darker and more foreboding way. The photographs use color, or the absence of it, to show human struggles for attention in a world of gray concrete. One example, Sylvette and Smithereens, sees a brightly painted van against the monochromatic buildings rising from the pavement. New things can be discovered each time a viewer enters the The New Yorkers. It s a rich gallery of images that takes time to fully digest and appreciate. It will be an important addition to any collection of photography volumes. Herman s work is instructive for other street photographers and just as valuable for anyone who is fascinated by the city of New York and the people who live there." --Foreword Reviews-Thomas Kachadurian

"The New Yorkers strikes me as a major work of street photography color, a step in the exploration of color photographic look. It certainly fits into the thread safe tradition, but close: there is the Harry Callahan in this work , but also a Robert Frank, who had slipped in Kodachrome rolls his Leica. But it would not do justice to this work if we reduced to a list of influences and predecessors. Robert Herman's approach here is unique and original. He photographed New Yorkers, and the color photograph. This means that color plays an important role in revealing the soul of New Yorkers and their relationship to the city." - Marc Wauman, Memories of Time --Memories of Time - Marc Wauman
