Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his days as an NYU film student in the late 70’s. He is the author of two monographs. The New Yorkers (Proof Positive Press), self-published in 2013, is a collection of his New York City photographs shot on Kodachrome between 1978-2005. His second monograph, The Phone Book (Schiffer 2015), is Herman’s collection of iPhone photographs made using the Hipstamatic App’s square format while traveling across the world. The Phone Book was chosen as one of the best photography books of 2015 by Elizabeth Avedon. In 2015, Herman’s work from The New Yorkers was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Amerika Haus in Munich, Germany. His photographs are in the permanent collections of The Museum of the City of New York, The George Eastman House and the Telfair Museum in Savannah GA. Herman has been interviewed on the Leonard Lopate show, and has been featured in The New York Times, Lenscratch, Lens Culture and many other publications. He has a BFA in Filmmaking from the School of the Arts at New York University and a Masters in Digital Photography from The School of Visual Arts. He is currently working on a new book of black and white images created while living in rural Georgia.
