Robert Herman, (born in Brooklyn, NY, 1955)  


About the Author: Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his days as an NYU film student back in the late 70's. His love of light and color, and making images that find the transcendent in the seemingly mundane, continues with the release of his newest collection of photographs filmed throughout the globe, on his iPhone using the Hipstamatic app, THE PHONE BOOK.


His photos of New York City shot between the years 1978-2005 on Kodachrome are featured in his first monograph: “THE NEW YORKERS.”  Now in the Third Printing!


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.
