Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his days as a film student in the late 1970’s. His love of light and color, and making images revealing the transcendent in the seemingly mundane, continues to this day. His work has been exhibited throughout the world and is part of the permanent collections of The George Eastman House and the Telfair Museum of Art. His first book, The New Yorkers, depicts the city as shot on Kodachrome from 1978-2005. The Phone Book is Herman’s collection of iPhone photographs made with the Hipstamatic App’s square format while traveling across the world.

You can see more of Robert’s work on his website and follow him on Facebook at
