Featured in The New York Times: Robert Herman Squares New Photos With Past Work Using an iPhone App-June 19th, 2015
Robert Herman, the award winning international photographer, elevates the practice of street photography in The Phone Book. With the iPhone, he has created compelling images from his travels around the world. Inspired by the technology of the Hipstamatic App, The Phone Book compendium is a creative labyrinth, that invites the viewer to discover their own connections between the images. As the follow up to his critically acclaimed first monograph, The New Yorkers, Robert Herman captures the world in brilliant spontaneity, unique in his artistry, universal in its humanity.
Believing that it is the photographer, not the camera that makes the photograph, The Phone Book places two photographs on opposing pages, creating spreads that invite the viewer to discover their own connections between the images and their own interpretation and experience. The Phone Book is a thread to broadening one's artistic sensibility, knowledge, visual literacy, and sense of connection with people and places throughout the world.
